La Grande Bellezza

(The Great Beauty)Described as a love letter to present day Roman decadence, this is a film about the beautiful and the damaged, about the young and the old and above all, it is a story about Rome. We follow the enigmatic Gambardella (Servillo) who plays the pensioner playboy stepping through the loosely connected vignettes as the camera swoops and glides around him.

It won Best Foreign Language film Oscar and Golden Globe; plus BAFTA Best Film not in the English Language.
