The Great Beauty, La Grande Bellezza, plunges into the world of the charismatic 65-year-old Jep Gambardella (the incomparable Toni Servillo), a famous journalist and single man-about-town, whose early promise as a novelist was never fulfilled. Jep is content enough with his life, made up of wild Euro-trash parties, fancy soireacute;es and encounters with the amusing and often absurd characters that inhabit his largely after-dark existence. Jep finds meaning in every part of his beloved city. When the husband of Jep's first lover reveals that his recently deceased wife was in fact always truly in love with Jep, a revitalised outlook on life and the city he loves is awakened. The exhausted pleasures and excesses of his life take on a freshness, particularly with his blossoming lust with Ramona (Sabrina Ferilli), a 41 year old exotic dancer. A darling of this year's Cannes Film Festival, Paolo Sorrentino (This Must Be The Place, Il Divo) has accomplished a five star homage to Rome - the Eternal City - and a sweeping, evocative tale in the style of Rossellini and Fellini. Roma si offre indifferente e seducente agli occhi meravigliati dei turisti, egrave; estate e la cittagrave; splende di una bellezza inafferrabile e definitiva. Jep Gambardella ha sessantacinque anni e la sua persona sprigiona un fascino che il tempo non ha potuto scalfire. Egrave; un giornalista affermato che si muove tra cultura alta e mondanitagrave; in una Roma che non smette di essere un santuario di meraviglia e grandezza.
