If the Father, Son and House of Gucci were the Trinity, as commemorated in read the greatest line in the history of cinema by Lady Gaga, then the bible was translated in Italian. Well, at least the Italian accent. What kind of Italian accent? No one seems to know, and it’s inevitable central talking point when it comes to new movies Gucci house. If only the movie could rise above that distraction.
Not only does Lady Gaga seem to have mixed a bit of her dialect with a bit of Russian, but Adam Driver has barely any accent, or Jared Leto is delivering her favorite video game character. you: Is he Mario? Luigi? Wario? Waluigi? Choose your fighter! It’s each performance from a different movie.
It’s that no one seems to understand the genre of the movie Gucci house yes, maybe the director Ridley Scott or fans who watched the trailer and drooled over the camp thriller (and they won’t watch it).
A lot of talk around Gucci house, a 2 hour 38 minute film that manages to turn the scene of a scorned wife targeting her ex-husband, who is in charge of Gucci really into the most engaging novel, is to be expected.
Based on the cast and trailer, some people will be disappointed to learn that the Shakespearean soap opera has been teased and instead is a rather painted family drama. Others will be blown away by the tour de force presentation of Lady Gaga’s miraculous performances, and will be forced to admit to themselves that they have been surprisingly drawn to the historical portrait. features Jared Leto’s prosthetic about the family’s most tragic character.
What does that mean, though, that is Gucci house is a film that is hard to talk about, where the elements are all top-notch: the kind of movie star performance from a pop icon hasn’t happened since Cher in Moonstruck, an attention to detail in the wardrobe and production design will make you swoon, and this bittersweet love story turns into the violent revenge the movies beg for. perform. However, for a movie centered around one of the most successful and influential fashion brands in the world, it really lacks style.
It’s not just that you leave the feeling that everything is supposed to be fun — and “fun” has a more malleable meaning when we’re talking about a real crime like this — but you’re not sure if anyone, maybe the star filmmakers created a public tour of how much her Acting Method approach has made about her happiness, had any fun making it.
The whole thing is a conundrum. You are completely swept away by this movie. It seems to be done wonderfully. But, to borrow from an existential crisis that the fashion house itself faced at the time the film began shooting, what is undeniably dazzling if there is no sense or sense of adventure behind it? after it?
That said, there’s one question I’ve been asking myself since I first saw the film: Is Lady Gaga legitimately amazing at this, or am I just gay?
In Gucci house, she describes Patrizia Reggiani during 30 years. She is irresistible when we meet her in the movie — a beautiful and ambitious young woman whose phrases like “joie de vivre“Exist for; a woman who pursues her own unrepentant”dolce vita. That irresistible charm was demonstrated when she met Maurizio Gucci (Driver) at a costume party. It’s cute that she shows off into a future, arranging runaways with him until he’s knocked down.
Lady Gaga makes the transition from Gidget-like to Lady Macbeth so seamless that you can end up with the final murder happening. In 1997, Patrizia was found guilty of hiring the hit man who killed Maurizio after he had an affair (at least according to the movie) and agreed to her idea to improve Gucci’s business, using psychics. her as a mediator to arrange affairs. (See! Did you read that?! This movie should be more fun!)
It’s the dumbest thing ever to say that Lady Gaga’s on-screen presence is glamorous. So let me put on a cap and say Lady Gaga’s on-screen presence is deadly seductive.
“It’s the dumbest thing ever to say that Lady Gaga’s on-screen presence is glamorous. So let me put on a cap and say Lady Gaga’s on-screen presence is deadly seductive.”
But what makes you throw when watching Gucci house It’s her presence, her way of capturing the attention of everyone she’s talking to, and then, you as a viewer. Every look. Emotions overflowing every time. Every gesture, down to the twirling of the spoon in the espresso, is engaging.
Of course Patrizia was able to convince Maurizio to put aside his prejudices about his rich family and marry her, then steer his way back to business, betraying his uncle and cousin, and made their families millions of dollars — only to, after all that work, be swept aside and sent into a jealous, bored rage. Such anger, however, has never been more benevolent, which is what Lady Gaga is doing.
As happens when Lady Gaga is on a press tour (let’s never forget “maybe 100 people and 99 people don’t believe in you…”), her answer to a question about Patrizia became a meme. “I don’t believe in the glorification of murder. I do believes in women’s empowerment,” she said. Without context, that’s a ridiculous statement. But when you watch the movie, you realize that’s what she does so beautifully.
This is the iconic Lady Gaga, playing a woman who orchestrated the murder of her husband. Clothes. Wig. Tone. Combined with “I’m Italian…” Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta has almost become meta. With all of that comes the risk of “yaaaasification” of an actual murder; a “murder, queen!” response to a fatal shot.
The way that Gaga understood the nuances of that tune and that implication and managed to create a delicious and engaging performance while still being grounded in enough to make the stakes when playing resonate and shuffle… it so delicate. (And yes, you get over her accent very quickly.)
But Lady Gaga alone doesn’t make a movie
The tempo can be Gucci houseis the biggest mistake. Patrizia and Mauricio’s first love is vibrant, romantic, and full of energy. Side trips to meet characters like Al Pacino’s amusing Uncle Aldo or Leto’s sad clown Paolo are works of spice and live drama. For a large part of its run, there’s a kinetic energy to the film that is the clatter, all the more impressive because it never takes away from the feeling of shadowing that we know. We are in the store.
But there’s a strange twist as the movie begins to sleepily gravitate toward the end we all know is coming. It just couldn’t seem to find a way to apply that style and excitement to the more famous episodes of the story, both about the murder and the family plot in the Gucci boardroom.
You’re sitting there wondering why the car you were so excited about wearing your seatbelt starts to slow down. Is the engine cut off? Why do drivers take their feet off the gas pedal? It’s not even that he put his foot on the brake. Even worse, you just come to the inevitable stop without any energy.
It’s good when Gucci house seems to be such an event. Lady Gaga’s performance deserves such an introduction. But you can’t have a fashion show. It’s a pity that the movie stops instead of striding to the end of the runway.
