Paolo Sorrentino’s stunning The Great Beauty (or La Grande Bellezza) makes its way to New Zealand cinemas this week after wowing festival audiences throughout last year, ultimately besting some stiff competition to claim both the Golden Globe and Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film — a just result following its baffling awards snub at Cannes. Sure to be remembered as a modern classic of Italian cinema, Sorrentino’s latest film — which was a highlight of the 2013 NZIFF and one of my top 10 films of last year — marks another fine collaboration with the great Toni Servillo, who previously starred in 2008’s excellent Il Divo. A Fistful of Culture is proud to have five double passes to giveaway thanks to Trigger Marketing, but be sure to get your entries in quick as passes to this must-see film will go fast.
The Great Beauty is in cinemas from March 27. Check out the trailer below.
