Wonderful movie but has many inaccuracies
I know I’m being sort of anal by mentioning this, but this movie, as beautiful and enchanting as it is, has many inaccuracies.
Farinelli, in addition to his handsome features and heavenly voice, was also a very humble person and hardly displayed the raucous behavior of a “rock star” as depicted in the film.
Second, the singer was known as disinterested in sex, thus I have no idea why the sex scenes in the film were included. True, there WERE castrati who did engage in pleasures of the flesh, but Farinelli was NOT one of them, or at least there are no historical records suggesting so.
All that aside, this movie was a lavishly done production and a must-see!
A wonderful rendition of 18th century European art life
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 Maître 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.
