There's something too artificial and highfalutin about the movie. Full Review
...It's definitely worth a look and a listen...
Rating: 1/4 -- Glossy and histrionic, salacious and empty, Farinelli reduces a fascinating story to a series of hissy fits and leering glances. Full Review
San Francisco Chronicle
Rating: 4/5 -- Artistry abounds in every aspect of the film. Full Review
Los Angeles Times
Because Carlo Broschi, the 18th-century castrato singer known as Farinelli, was himself such an exotic and sensationalistic figure, you'd think that creating a dull movie out of his flamboyant life would be next to impossible. Think again. Full Review
...The film has a sleek, cultivated tone...

The life story of Carlo Broschi, who at age seven had surgery to become a castrato to preserve his sweet voice.
