The movie shows the audience everything beautiful: beautiful decor and costumes, nice story and flavor of atmosphere, the old Faust pact and rock star motifs mixed . The problem is that all that pieces are not really enough. Paganini is more than a legend and that movie use, in fact, only its shadow. As the golden images, the mixture of old and pretty ingredients who can reminds Farinelli or Amadeus are only for decoration not for be roots of an authentic, convincing story. It is a beautiful movie. But only aesthetic and , unfortunately, not at whole. And for not blame the team behind it - the honest good intentions are obvious - , it is important to choose the inspired parts - the music, the presence of Helmut Berger, the work of Jared Harris to save appearances. But, with little more courage and different angle about Paganini trajectory, it could be really an interesting movie. Despite the ambition of makers, it is only a promise using the shadow of a legend.
