Technically speaking about Stealing Beauty, Tuscany, Italy the back ground of the movie looks beautiful and mind boggling. Bernardo Bertolucci the Italian director has made this place even more colorful and beautiful. After 15 years of exile, self imposed, Bernardo Bertolucci has set his foot in Italy with this movie. His Set designer, Gianni Silvestri has done a remarkable job.
Darius Khondji has handled cinematography in this movie. A major portion of the movie is shot outside to get the proper feel. The first scene of the movie is enchanting. What has let the movie down is the script. The script by Susan Minot based on the story by Bernardo Bertolucci is very weak. The story is very unconvincing. Music again, by Richard Hartley is very sordinary and nothing above the average. Performance of the actors is also not justified. They don’t look as a part of the movie. In a nut shell there is not anything about the movie that can make u sit through it
In simple words the movie revolves around free sex, nudity, filthy languages and casual usage of drugs. Most of the time, the characters in the movie are found to be running around with no clothes on them. All men in the movie seem to be attracted to Lucy. Smoking and doping are commonly shown here. There seems to be a small mystery in stealing beauty but that gets resolved very easily.
