Il Divo

Il Divo is a masterpiece.
- Jay Weissberg, VARIETY
In both meanings of the word, Il Divo is sensational.
- Carrie Rickey, THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
The visuals are frankly superb, with lighting and camera work to rival anything in the last couple of years.
- Michael Edwards, SCREEN JABBER
Quirky and innovative? a hugely rewarding film.
- Michael Edwards, SCREEN JABBER
5 STARS OUT OF 5 - Delicious and deadly!
- Dave Calhoun, TIME OUT LONDON
Compelling!
- Liam Lacey, GLOBE AND MAIL
The filmmaking is sensational...almost every shot in the film is a grand composition, with heavy chiaroscuro and emotionally stirring music.
- Stephen Holden, NEW YORK TIMES
3.5 STARS OUT OF 4
- Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN TIMES
Superbly cinematic.
- David Parkinson, EMPIRE MAGAZINE
Consume with great caution, and with joy.
- Anthony Lane, THE NEW YORKER
As operatic cinema, it ranks alongside the best of Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola
- Stephen Holden, NEW YORK TIMES
Simultaneously exhilarating and confounding.
- Kenneth Turan, LA TIMES
Frequently outrageous!
- Peter Brunette, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
Il Divo plays like an elegantly ritualized black comedy.
- Ella Taylor, THE VILLAGE VOICE
Sorrentino is a spectacularly inventive talent and has harnessed an astounding performance from Servillo.
- Shawn Levy, PORTLAND OREGONIAN
Brilliant performance by Toni Servillo.
- Vanessa Farquharson, NATIONAL POST
You need know nothing about Italian politics to completely enjoy the fantastical, Fellini-fied, tragi-comic, biographical fun-for-all Il Divo.
- Lisa Schwartzbaum, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
A fine piece of filmmaking.
- Robin Clifford, REELING REVIEWS
The highly stylized, often outrageously funny biopic is anchored by a devastating performance by Toni Servillo as Andreotti, brilliantly capturing the gnomic politician's trademark slouch and inexpressive face.
- V.A. Musetto, NEW YORK POST
Se classe parmi le meilleur de Martin Scorsese et Francis Ford Coppola!
- The New York Times
Sidérant!
- New York Post
Hautement inventif et intelligent! Une référence pour les années à venir.
- Variety

synopsis

Gagnant du prix du Jury au festival de Cannes de 2008, Il Divo raconte l'histoire controversée de Guilio Andreotti (Toni Servillo). Calme, rusé et impénétrable, Andreotti a été premier ministre d'Italie pendant sept mandats consécutifs jusqu'au début des années 1990 alors que la mafia la plus puissante au monde lui déclarait la guerre. Habilement réalisé et rempli de suspense, Il Divo est une histoire de partisanerie, de orruption, de scandale et de terrorisme et de l'homme qui passa à travers tout cela sans une égratignure.
