I didn’t really feel any particular way about this film as a whole.
First of all, I legitimately think this is the greatest movie score of all time. Not only that, Gabriel’s Oboe might be the single most beautiful piece of music to ever grace this planet. I’ve played it at multiple weddings and hope to have it played at mine. I adore Ennio Morricone, and this score seems to capture the romantic side of him, it’s a bit of a bummer it wasn’t for a better movie.
Other than that, the movie looked beautiful, but never did much to grab my attention. I really respect these actors and their dedication, it seemed like everyone went through a lot to get this movie made.
Robert De Niro has never looked more beautiful in my opinion. He’s surprisingly dreamy here, especially given how gritty the setting is. That is all.
