Love Opera

Documentary following Brisbane’s world-class Lisa Gasteen National Opera Program as it prepares a production of Carmen, with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra.

Nestled inside Griffith University on Brisbane’s South Bank, the program is the brainchild of its eponymous leader, whose singular qualities as an opera singer have taken her from The Met to Covent Garden and all across Europe. We follow Lisa as she looks to cultivate the next generation of opera stars and deliver a top-flight production over the course of an intensive program.

Some movies can get away with just being a scenery sandwich, a few fat slabs of gorgeous vistas with a sliver of plot slipped in between. Made in Italy is that kind of movie.

For a movie that's supposedly meant to lift us off our couches and set us down in a verdant dreamscape, this limp foreign-soil fantasy from James D'Arcy doesn't come close to getting the job done.

I can only hope this real-life bonding exercise was more satisfying than what appears on screen.

Liam Neeson and his real-life son Micheál Richardson bring a personal sense of love and loss to this otherwise mawkish tale of grief and healing, Italian style.

A treacly slog with a screenplay that fails the storied talent of its elder lead, and the promising gifts of his younger counterpart.
