The Press Reviews

  • Initial impressions, however, can be deceptive, and Howard turns out to be a natural choice to direct the excellent "Pavarotti," a warm, emotional and completely involving film about the celebrated tenor. Full Review

  • Pavarotti's larger-than-life personality shines in almost every scene. The singer's optimism is contagious, and his schoolboy-like wonder is jubilant. There's a lot to smile at here. Full Review

  • This was not a man wanting for friends and his likability floods the film. Twelve years since his death he's bound to make even more new fans thanks to Howard's valentine. Full Review

  • A portrait of a man blessed with one of the 20th century's most beloved voices, "Pavarotti" is, like many authorized, cradle-to-grave biographical documentaries, informative, more than a little reverential, yet entertaining enough. Full Review

  • Howard adopts a no-muss-no-fuss tone of benevolent civility that feels like a legitimate way to go, keeping Pavarotti's identity as a singer front and center. Full Review

  • ...as a Pavarotti – and indeed – opera primer (there's a great explanation of the tenor voice and potted plots of key works), this delivers in spades. Full Review
