Lady Gaga shines in “Gucci House” Curily Drab

At the end of Gucci house (in theaters November 24), we see a title card explaining the fate of Patrizia Reggiani (aka Patrizia Gucci) when she was put on trial for the murder of her ex-husband, Mauricio, heir to the Gucci fashion empire. These brief sentences suggest a sensational criminal trial for a crime born of enduring anger — which, oddly enough, we rarely see in actual movies.

Much of those flashy stories were used to talk about company shares and father/son anguish. It’s emblematic of a war movie unto itself, caught between the lure of excess and seeming desire to tell a more somber story of dynastic struggles. If only the director Ridley Scottand screenwriter Becky Johnston and Robert Bnkinggna, accepted the former rather than the latter.

Gucci house start with a repulsive charge. We meet young Patrizia, played by a girl with shaggy hair and thick voice Lady Gagaand she gets cute with the reluctant Maurizio, played somehow both beaming and awkward by Adam Driver. Like she did in her first movie, 2018 A star was born, Gaga creates a wonderful, seductive intoxication when in love. Patrizia and Maurizio’s giddy energy enlivens these early scenes, the appeal of a blossoming romance mixed with a hint of tantalizingly dangerous ambition.

A lot of hay has been made Gucci houseThe accents, contours of the Italianate-sounding vowels differ in and out of the reliable field. But Gaga and Driver, circling and crashing into each other, deliver performances that transcend any linguistic wobble. They almost make it possible to forget that they are trying to make a high string sound. Their magnetic appeal seems to promise a movie that balances goofiness with sincere passion.

But, as happens in any long-term relationship, we must eventually meet the rest of the family. They take the form of an A-list group: Jeremy Irons as Maurizio’s disdainful father, Rodolfo; Al Pacino as his more pompous brother, Aldo; and Jared Leto is Aldo’s unruly son, Paolo. When we found it, the Gucci brand was respected, but perhaps a bit dated and upstream. And it was run erratically by Aldo, a management crisis that Patrizia saw as an opportunity. She gradually urges her husband to move towards control of the company, which is when the movie should be gripping and become a series of juicy power plays between absurdly rich family members, all takes place in the many villas, chalets and apartments in splendid Milan.

Alas, that movie is not like that. Gucci house slow as it goes, making a serious miscalculation in balancing personal and business life. We spend a lot of time on financial matters, but don’t learn enough about what especially make up Gucci Gucci, in addition to some of their signature finishes. And, as with all horror films, we lose track of those involved – especially Patrizia – as the film spends the years on Maurizio’s path to its ill-timed ending. The drama of the marriage evolves over and over, as well as the secret analysis of the majority and other industry issues. In all its canned conflicts, Gucci house having a general atmosphere, that’s the last thing you’d want to call a movie like this.

Of course, there are plenty of gorgeous outfits to enjoy, worn with Gaga’s (naturally) special fanfare. A shiny, blood-red ski suit is a standout, despite a scene in which Patrizia tries to take down a woman prowling around Maurizio (Camille Cottin). It’s one of the film’s last exciting moments, before everything gives way to a puzzlingly obvious demise.

Those glorious fashions are the only visuals that really appear in Scott’s dreary presentation, which favors a sombre and somber mood over watercolors and colors. It’s as if we can see Scott and company trying to make this a serious movie, rather than simply leaning on the killer ice of it all and letting us enjoy it. (With some guilt – someone got killed in the end.) I’m not sure where this urge came from, but I suspect it has something to do with trying to make a more engaging movie. including gay men who had pre-booked their tickets on the day the movie was announced.
