CAST: Luciano Pavarotti, Spike Lee, Princess Diana, Bono, Stevie Wonder DIRECTOR: Ron Howard
From the filmmaking team behind the highly-acclaimed documentary The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years, Pavarotti is a riveting film that lifts the curtain on the icon who brought opera to the people. Academy Award (R) winner Ron Howard puts audiences front row center for an exploration of The Voice...The Man...The Legend. Luciano Pavarotti gave his life to the music and a voice to the world. This cinematic event features history-making performances and intimate interviews, including never-before-seen footage.
Pavarotti's larger-than-life personality shines in almost every scene. The singer's optimism is contagious, and his schoolboy-like wonder is jubilant. There's a lot to smile at here.Ken Jaworowski, New York Times
Leave it to Ron Howard to craft a portrait of Luciano Pavarotti that is as exquisitely told and emotionally beauteous as Pavarotti's own voice. Pavarotti is, in a word, Bellisimo!Debbie Lynn Elias, Behind The Lens
