La Grande Bellezza (The Great Beauty)
Arguably one of the most beautiful and striking movies I’ve ever seen, La Grande Bellezza is a masterpiece in its own right. From the carefully thought and immersive dialogues (and monologues), to superb photography and the sarcastic humor in which it depicts Roman society, it hooks you right from the start.
To top it off, the main character (Jeb Gambardella) is a prime example of class, elegance and style, portraying a unique Italian nonchalance brought to life through unstructured jackets and suits, perfectly tailored and in unexpected bright colors. Not to forget the wide range of pocket squares he effortlessly sports in the most exquisite ways. If I reach 65 looking like that, I’ll be one happy man.
