This is the story of a man who possessed a magical and elusive quality that made him a legend, shining through on each of his appearances on the big screen. Born in a small town in Southern Italy, Valentino emigrated to New York in 1913 at the age of 18. Without speaking a word of English, his good looks came to his rescue. He initially took up small films roles, landing him on the sets of various well-known silent movies. After starring in The Sheik he instantly became a superstar and a sex symbol of the 1920s, known as the "Great Lover". Women went crazy for his dark, mysterious look, and the wanton way the sheik treated the heroine. His life was characterized by success, love, and personal disasters. Valentino's reputation was also enhanced by his arrest for bigamy. After marrying the wrong woman he met the love of his life, Natacha, but failed to wait for his divorce to be finalized before remarrying. Another humiliation came when Natacha left him heartbroken, moving to France and... Written by Marianna Gatto

Far to be a right term, in this case "nic" has the sense of decent. Using the biography of Rudolph Valentino almost as pretext, proposing three pillars of Italian cinematography of the last decades - Angela Molina, Asia Argento, Orso Maria Guerrini, Gabriel Garko, it is one of many superficial-sentimental-too easy series with a seductive actor in the lead role, with a story like pink novels, with a drop of glamour and dramatic crumbs. For a film about Valentino, all that works in well manner. Not real surprising . And the performance of Gabriel Garko is reasonable, his body and good look being more important than the artistic skills.
