Made with heart and soul, but lacks technicality
2 October 2018 | by KarenAMSee all my reviews

Bel Canto is a heartbreaking story of love, justice and human connections. A group of freedom fighters invade a private event in Lima and keep wealthy people in hostage, and demand freedom of unfairly jailed comrades and retirement of corrupted president. Even though the film itself is full of warmth and is made with good intentions, I couldn't help but feel a sense of uncertainty of where the writers and the director were heading to. The film is based on true events, however it fails to give us in-depth character development, or more constructive and detailed description of the event. Julianne Moore and the rest of the cast did their best to help the movie out, but it just feels incomplete.
