The Consequences of Love
Titta di Girolamo has been living in a small hotel in Lugano for ten years, he leads a dull and rigid live and has apparently lost his capability to feel human emotion. This all changes when he decides to talk to Sofia, the Barmaid.
This is only my second film of Paolo Sorrentino and I can say that I am a fan. After watching the amazing La Grande Bellezza that came out last year I wanted to explore of is filmography. Just by the opening scene, I knew that I was going to love this film.
I think the word that best suits this film is perfect. The thing that I admire more in a film is when it has the ability to enchant you until the very last minute, that happened with me. I can say that this film is a true masterpiece.
Le Conseguenze Dell'Amore cinematography is amazing, shot in a beautiful way, very stylish with an elegant edition. The haunting soundtrack…
There’s all kinds of stuff in The Consequences Of Love that I don’t know how to talk about.
There are bits with cameras moving about places and doing things and stuff that seems really great, and there’s editing and that kind of jive that looks really cool. But I don’t know how to talk about that kind of thing and I’m often envious of people who can. They can see the kind of thing I’m on about here, know what the director or cinematographer or editor has done, and appreciate that fully because they fully understand the processes they went through to achieve that. Whereas I don’t.
This is one of the rare occasions where a film does something like…
Gorgeous, beautiful cinematography with a hauntingly beautiful soundtrack. Titta di Girolamo, the protagonist, is the personification of the film itself. Awkward, unsettled, and not entirely sure who he is, he inhabits a number of roles uncomfortably, without ever fitting into any of them. So moving, and melancholic.
I must say i was rather disappointed by consequences of love but I think it was because I was expecting something completely different. I was expecting to experience the emotions and revelations I experienced during Great beauty which I guess was unfair because consequences of love doesnt even try to reach as far as Sorrentino's latest effort. I was expecting something life altering and it never came, but the more I think on it the more my estimations grow because in the simple story there are definitely many layers to explore and I think that went right over my head this time round. i can usually feel when I didnt get the the most out of a film on first…
Wow. What a movie.
Merging tremendous camerawork with great direction, an intriguing slow burn character drama, some musings about life and a terrific Toni Servillo. I loved this a lot.
Exquisite shots, great music, just brilliant. The revelations are subtle, the emotions palpable.

Future Projects: Do Not Underestimate...
Having watched about a dozen other movies featuring Toni Servillo, but especially having watched all other Sorrentino's movies, since I first watched TCOL, I believed this fact, about this two people, was in some ways enough special to lead me to ask myself: Would I still like it, watching this movie again?. At the end, the answer was: Yes!. ( Well, possibly less, but very slightly less...)
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Beautiful film! I'm glad I went to see this at my cinema because I'm pretty sure it was a 35 mm presentation (grainy picture, slight problems with consistency, but beautiful detail) and there seems to be no Blu-ray for this (insanely!).
There are some comparisons you can make with The Great Beauty (they are both insanely beautiful) but this is a much simpler, more minimalist film. Reminds me a lot of Monsieur Hire as well!
Sorry for no proper review, but, well - go see this if possible!
Un film molto intenso che scava nella vita di un uomo d'affari caduto in miseria rilegato dalla mafia in un hotel. È tutto molto interessante con una giusta combinazione tra colori ed inquadrature molto strette. E poi c'è Servillo uno dei mostri sacri del cinema italiano. Il risultato non può che essere un gran film.
Pomeriggio all’Ikea: per me equivale ad una lobotomia temporanea! Resisto i primi 10 minuti poi continuo il tour per inerzia fino a quando qualcuno non mi carica in macchina, mi riporta a casa e mi lancia sul divano dove vi rimango in stato catatonico fino al giorno seguente. Oggi però è andata diversamente. Ero sul divano e i miei occhi sono riusciti ad intravedere in un breve momento di lucidità la programmazione dei film: leggo “Le conseguenze dell’amore”. Una ventata di energia: mi sono ripresa immediatamente! Mai successo!
Parte il film e si entra nel mondo sospeso di Titta Di Girolamo: tutto procede con la stessa monotonia. La vita scorre attorno senza scalfire lo sguardo del protagonista fino quando non…
Sorrentino gives you the feeling of a missed day of happiness where staying at home was the wrong choice
Visually I can understand why some give this a very high rating. Unfortunately I find many Italian films that prioritise style over substance to be quite tough to stay focused on. After 20 minutes I was just about ready to simply stop watching this (something I very rarely actually do). It was the cinematic experience of watching paint dry. Beautiful paint, but paint nevertheless. I am glad I stuck with it (tho I had to take a break to prevent falling asleep in the middle), but I doubt I will be looking at more of this director's films any time soon.
a slow-burner for sure, but with the iconic themes of self-reflection that sorrentino has come to be known for.
