I was literally spell bound. Michael Parkinson had interviewed this legend, Ian McKellen was the narrator and Francis Hanley and Adam Sweeting spent twelve months making this film and discovering amazing details about their subject's life and his roots in Modena, Italy which were very strong even till the end. The year that this production was made was the year Pavarotti's youngest daughter was christened, when he married his personal assistant Nicoletta Mantovani and he gave his farewell performance in New York City at the Met.
This was a BBC Arena film and it aptly captured a truly amazing portrait of a brilliant virtuoso at age 70. Sweeting and Hanly stated, "We wanted to explore the texture of Pavarotti's life as he contemplated the final phase of his career. We sat in his living room while he watched his favourite football team, Juventus, on TV, and tried to understand the rules of his favourite card game, Briscola. He talked about how much he owes his father, an enthusiastic amateur tenor, and discussed other great tenors of history. Even ten years wouldn't have been enough to find out everything about Pavarotti, but we got most of the answers we wanted."
Indeed they did. I have never seen such a wonderful intimate view of the man. They traced his life from its humble beginnings and that of his family; their roots, where he lived and we even saw a very touching duet performed by both father and son in Italy.Read more ›
