Howard's documentary reminds us that, at his peak, Pavarotti was an artist with, as he wanted us to believe, the soul of a peasant.

"Pavarotti" shows us why he was such a cultural force, and why nobody has filled the void he left behind.

Sublime

Howard's execution is a little routine - perhaps his idea is to just let the man's greatness speak for itself?
June 20, 2019
It's an engaging film, filled with vintage snapshots, interviews with friends and former colleagues, and, most of all, that marvelously distinctive voice, with all the emotion it could convey.
June 20, 2019
Pavarotti is a brilliant and well made portrait, not of a man, but of a human being with the voice of an angel and a heart of gold.
June 20, 2019
This love letter dedicated to opera's biggest rock star, the larger-than-life Luciano Pavarotti, achieves something most documentaries about the deceased rarely do: It brings a man back to glorious life.
June 20, 2019
What's most compelling in "Pavarotti" isn't the backstory, but the clips of the singer deploying that amazing voice.
June 18, 2019
A warm-hearted documentary that not only brings Pavarotti roaring back to life, but also humanizes a figure who in his prime was larger than life itself.
June 14, 2019
An enthusiastic and kind-hearted profile.

While Pavarotti is a celebration of the bloke who sold more than 100 million albums and played to audiences in excess of 10 million, it's not just a trawl through his successes - or a hagiography.

As "Pavarotti" demonstrates, while the music was mesmerizing, so was the man.

Ron Howard's documentary on the late great Italian tenor Pavarotti is more than a musical treat - but it is assuredly that.
June 11, 2019
Through a standard mix of interviews and archival footage, Howard tells a warm and inviting story of the singer from his humble beginnings to the almost godlike status he achieved in the opera world.
June 10, 2019
Howard's whitewashed version is entertaining enough, but it would have been better had it told the whole story, the negative with the positive.

You probably won't be able to sing along, but good luck suppressing a smile.

Leave it to Ron Howard to craft a portrait of Luciano Pavarotti that is as exquisitely told and emotionally beauteous as Pavarotti's own voice. Pavarotti is, in a word, Bellisimo!
June 8, 2019
Pavarotti was a great friend and a great humanitarian. Howard's fabulous biopic does all of it justice.
June 8, 2019
Ron Howard's production of PAVAROTTI is a perfect tribute to the man who was larger than life. And you do not have to be a fan of Pavarotti or opera in general to appreciate this splendid documentary.

Pavorotti serves more as an ideal introduction for opera newcomers as well as those who may not have been around at the singer's zenith as a media star in the early to mid-1990s.
