News & Interviews for Passione
Critic Reviews for Passione
Turturro creates the sense that music spews spontaneously from the average Neapolitan and limits the film's educational quotient. But as anyone who has been to Naples knows, you don't go there to learn but to live, out loud.
It's a happy ramble through the storied streets with Turturro as our guide, not pretending to be an expert; it's more like having a good friend take you to this place he really loves.
Close to the sublime, especially if you have a thing for sensuous Italians of either gender unleashing ballads of soaring romantic masochism.
Passione is a surprise and a delight from beginning to end.
Audience Reviews for Passione
John Turturro takes us on a tour of the Naples music scene, where a melange of influences---from opera to Arabic music to American jazz/pop of the 1940s (brought in by G.I.s during WWII)---blend together to create a unique musical atmosphere. Almost entirely built around full length music-video style performances, it's more a variety show than a documentary. Entertaining, but your actual rating will depend on how well you like the performers.
