Great fun. Smashing editing, scoring and cinematography and an incredible performance from Servillo.

Now, maybe I was only as lost as your average Italian felt watching Oliver Stone's "Nixon" (no one should have to watch his "W."), but as far as I could tell "Il Divo" had no plot. Plot isn't everything, of course, and this movie Now, maybe I was only as lost as your average Italian felt watching Oliver Stone's "Nixon" (no one should have to watch his "W."), but as far as I could tell "Il Divo" had no plot. Plot isn't everything, of course, and this movie does have style and sumptuousness for days, but come on, you gotta throw me a little human value of some kind, and not just this parade of caricatures (there was even a guy in an obvious fat suit). Like a fine Italian shoe with no soul. No thanks. Expand

Unbelievably boring movie. i like artistic foreign films, i even like political dramas but this was a complete waist of time. there are literally 3 dozen obscure characters that one must follow and none of them are the least bit interesting.

Sorrentino's glossy style seems totally inappropriate for such a purely political story, giving us endless zooms and stale Scorsese montages in place of character or insight or plot. After an hour of gazing at Toni Servillo's Sorrentino's glossy style seems totally inappropriate for such a purely political story, giving us endless zooms and stale Scorsese montages in place of character or insight or plot. After an hour of gazing at Toni Servillo's totally inexpressive face ; an endless stream of cryptic, gnomic remarks and a continuous stream of faceless bureacrats, maintaining interest in the 'story' becomes nigh impossible. Disappointing. Expand

The filmmaking is really very good, but it can be confusing and hard to follow sometimes if you're not familiar with Italian political history (which, no offense, you probably aren't).
