More about the sex than the voice.Reviewed bymifunesamuraiVote: 7/10
In the 18th century, long before modern music could be canned for mass consumption, there existed a life-style which could only be sculpted from the unfortunate lives of prepubescent boys of Europe. This movie called " Farinelli " is the finest example of what was once deemed a most unique form of Opera. The story is based on the true story of two brothers who's father fettered them to a life of music and composition. Stefano Dionisi plays Carlo Broschi, AKA as Farinelli and his brother Riccardo Broschi (Enrico Lo Verso). Together they travel far and wide seeking not only an Opera loving audience, but also a rich patron who could afford their talent. The time of our story is set during the Baroque heyday of Frideric Handel (Jeroen Krabbe) who's great Classical music became the epitome of royalty and high society alike. The elder Broschi believes he did the right thing by suffering his younger brother to the excruciating pain of being castrated. However, he is then haunted by the fact his tortured brother has nightmares from the incident. Travel as the two boys do throughout the film, the story becomes more a testament of conscience, than one dealing with the audience appreciation of the day. Still, for Opera lovers or for those who enjoy good operatic theater, this movie delivers a cornucopia of both, with great period costumes and superior acting. Indeed, Stefano Dionisi and Jeroen Krabbé are superb as their lives play against each another. ****
Farinelli is a wonderful rendition of 18th century European art life where sounds of music spelled passions in the hearts of all music lovers. Farinelli's voice is a justification of his existence. The film remains faithful to ancient times. Broschi brothers shared everything equally. It is this tendency which has helped them to remain strong and intact. The film's brilliance is a result of mellifluous music, accurate set design, costumes etc all of which lend it an air of perfectionism. It is unusual that Gérard Corbiau has chosen this film after "L'année de l'éveil" although his new film "Le Roi Danse" is also believed to be in the same vein. Whatever might be the truth, it can rightly be said that the historical inaccuracies have been subdued by elaborate set design and costumes. After the critically acclaimed "Le Ma?tre de Musique" Corbiau has sensibly dealt with music. He has proved that inspiration cannot be replaced with virtuosity. One must try to find real emotions in music.
