Rating: 1.5/4 -- This is a bad movie, but it would have been a great deal worse were it not for Pavarotti's almost childlike charm. Full Review

There's no imagination in the story or script to even justify the musical interventions of the tenor. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

There's no mistaking the grand voice, the outsized personality, the friendly, open face. Stepping outside his traditional operatic canon to star in his only feature film is renowned tenor Luciano Pavarotti.

Not that the "King of the High Cs" steps too far outside with this breezy tale of romance. Nor would fans want things any other way. The role of an opera star touring the U.S. provides an ample showcase for Pavarotti's rich vocal artistry in works including Ave Maria, La Donna È Mobile, his signature Nessun Dorma, even I Left My Heart in San Francisco. Franklin J. Schaffner (Patton) directs, with locations including Italy, Boston, New York and the Napa Valley. Bravo, Giorgio! Bravissimo, Luciano!

Product Description:

Luciano Pavarotti, tenor par excellence, makes his film debut in this romantic comedy. Some of the beautiful songs included are "If We Were in Love," "I Left my Heart in San Francisco," and a number of arias by Verdi, Ponchielli, Donizetti and Puccini. Academy Award Nominations: Best Song ("If We Were in Love").

Plot Synopsis:

A world-famous tenor romances a pretty throat doctor while preparing for his return visit to New York City's Metropolitan Opera, the site of a seemingly cursed performance many years before.
