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…
A near perfect film, the depth of the deceptively complex narrative is matched only by the gorgeous cinematography. The film looks absolutely fantastic, and if it wasn't so perfectly shot it would have been much more of a struggle to stay interested in what is a very slow, meticulous and patient drama. Kudos to the soundtrack as well, never before have I experienced luscious violin crescendos being contrasted with frantic dub-step to such great effect.
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.

PROYECTOS PARA EL FUTURO:
LAS CONSECUENCIAS DE LOS FILMS DE SORRENTINO.
Otra delicia Sorrentino/Servillo, un thriller romántico como los que actores de Hollywood deberían hacer en su madurez/vejez... en fin, siempre nos quedará la bella Italia.
At least my sixth viewing, my third this year, and thoroughly convinced it's in my top 25 of all time. Sorrentino is a freaking magician, weaving disparate tones, musical styles, and a slowly burning story together with rich aplomb and an astonishing fluidity of camerawork that I've never seen the like of. (Seriously, if you have, let me know.) And, of course, Toni Servillo's magnificently somber (I'd call it deadpan, but that misleadingly implies comedy on his part) performance. Apparently this has never even had a DVD release in the States, to which I say Holy Fucking Shit how is this disappearing down the rabbit hole?
Paolo Sorrentino's sophomore film, "The Consequences of Love", again stars his muse Toni Servillo as another enigmatic, introverted figure at the center of a spiraling character study. Toss in some good 'ol Sicilian mafia types and the stunningly beautiful Olivia Magnani (granddaughter of Italian cinema's Anna Magnini) as the girl who sets his conscience in motion and one gets a wonderfully muted tale about the dramatic ways one can turn their life around.
Servillo plays Titta, a middle-aged recluse of sorts living out his existence in solitude at a luxurious Swiss hotel. The only pleasures he allows himself is a weekly dose of heroin and the chance to quietly observe (but never respond) to a beautiful bar hostess, Sofia (Magnini).…
Fuckin' WOW. It didn't caught me at start, but when it did - it didn't let go. I think it's time for some Sorrentino marathonpalooza
Movie #551 of "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die".
A true masterpiece by Sorrentino and Tony Servillo demonstrates his exceptional acting ability as the cool, enigmatic Titta.
The soundtrack of the movie suits exactly. Songs fill up the silences in the movie
It is one of the best stylish Italian cinema
Are sometimes good, sometimes bad
A beguiling, slow burning thriller which plays on the mind long after. Outstanding central performance with Sorrentino showing us what was to come with his music choices.
Tras quedarme maravillado con La gran belleza, miré la filmografía de Sorrentino y me llamó la atención su segunda película, Las consecuencias del amor.
Nuevamente me he topado con una dirección atrevida y original, adornada de una buena banda sonora y una narrativa que quizás no es lo más convencional del mundo, pero a poco que uno esté atento no debería tener mayores problemas para seguir la trama. Y si os aburrió La gran belleza, yo creo que ésta os puede parecer como mínimo más entretenida. Merece una oportunidad.
Por momentos me ha recordado a Nicolas Winding Refn, aunque recreandose mucho menos en la violencia y con un guión menos vacuo, en el sentido de que encontraréis un puñado de frases resulonas de caracter reflexivo. Puede que todo sea pura verborrea (también a nivel visual), pero a mí me ha gustado.
The Dark Beauty
Ever seen a film that lulls you to sleep every five minutes because it is SO BORING? I snapped back to attention only when some nice techno music kicked in (this exceptionally boring film has an edgy soundtrack) or the sexy lead actress was back in the frame. Sorrentino attempts SO MANY THINGS in this movie (intricate camera set-ups that are absolutely unnecessary) that he simply ignored the basic need to tell a goddamn story. Let the content guide the style; when style envelops content to the point that film is all about directorial flourishes, your film suffers. Everyone isn't Scorsese and it takes years of filmmaking and freakish genius to marry style and content seamlessly as Scorsese does.
