Bravo to "Pavarotti"

This year's big doc may be Ron Howard's "Pavarotti," a love letter about the great tenor. More than any opera singer since Enrico Caruso a century before, Pavarotti made opera cool in the latter part of the 20th century. With his larger-than-life personality and crystal-clear voice, he became a worldwide sensation, performing everywhere from rural outposts to massive stadiums to outdoor parks. Howard manages to piece together decades of film --- often grainy and amateurish - with deeply personal interviews with the Maestro's ex-wives, former mistress, daughters, peers (Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, and several sopranos), and admirers. He weaves biography with taped performances from the time Pavarotti was a promising young singer through his waning years. In fact, Howard presents Pavarotti's life as opera. A man of great passion - for opera, for women, for food, for children - Pavarotti lived large. And he died painfully. Howard manages to make the audience feel the highs and the lows of Pavarotti's personal and professional lives. But the film is long. It proves that even great directors can fall in love with their own films. Howard could have spent less time in the run-up to stardom to get us to the fantastic success of his middle years and the explosive teaming with Domingo and Carreras as The Three Tenors. His death is handled beautifully as is Pavarotti's heartfelt charitable endeavors in concert with Princess Diana, Bono and many others. Even if you don't love opera, you will enjoy this stunning documentary.

Captures the heart & soul of Pavarotti

I saw this film in a theater in New York a few days ago and was enchanted by the film and by the subject of the documentary: Luciano Pavarotti. I didn't know much about Pavarotti before having seen the film and I am not an opera fan. However, this touching documentary endeared me to the man and his music. His life is well documented in this film, excellently directed by Ron Howard. Whether or not you like opera, you will likely appreciate the humor & heart which Pavarotti had as well as his obvious vocal talent. A documentary about a person is supposed to capture the essence of the human being or artist and this film succeeds in doing that. It also successfully revealed the notion that a great artist is also a flawed human being who leads an imperfect life, just like everyone else. I left the theater wanting to know more about the man & his music. Bravo to all involved in this production.

Excellent and Beautiful Movie Of one of the Greatest Opera Singers Ever!

It's only been 12 years since the great tenor Luciano Pavarotti died of pancreatic cancer, too young at the age of 70. Ron Howard's documentary doesn't only make you miss the singer, it also makes you miss, Of all things, a robust music industry. The Movie itself reflects heavily on his life and his final days as an Opera Singer before his passing, and the direction that Ron Howard uses as his Key Directing Style fits very perfectly with the flow of this Movie. I love Opera Music as much as anything in the Musical Department and I REALLY love Pavarotti, and this Movie has lots of respect shown for the man. This is one of those Independent Movies and it may not play in many Theaters, so I had to find a Theater far away from where I live to see this Movie and I loved everything about it. Easily one of the best Documentary Movies ever made and an extremely accurate take on one of the greatest Opera Singers in History!
