Excellent and Beautiful Movie Of one of the Greatest Opera Singers Ever!
10 June 2019 | by burkholdermicahSee all my reviews

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!
