I believe this to be an exceptionally fine A&E Biography. I worked on 10 Biographies, and of the ones I worked on, this is my favorite. It covers Michelangelo's life and work, and is nicely balanced. There are only a few on-camera interviews, though. Most of the story is told by the excellent narration. The warm and supportive musical score was provided by film composer Rolfe Kent, and the photography of modern Italy and some of Michelangelo's works is exceptional.
I am glad Biography does not shy away from revealing Michelangelo's tormented personal life and his eternal struggle to reconcile his homosexual passions with his religious beliefs...passions and pain which undoubtedly inspired his greatest works!

A&E does a fine job covering the important aspects of an unfathomable subject. There needs to be a piece on Michelangelo and a separate piece on his art. Read morePublished on February 8, 2008 by Steve Ford
