Much beauty, but also aesthetic innovation and plenty of nostalgia: Paolo Sorrentino succeeded with his Oscar winner, a homage to Fellini’s ‘Dolce Vita’ and ‘Roma’ evoking the ‘eternal city’, a mixture of cynicism and tenderness, with spectacular camera movements and magical moments. Luca Trevisani’s tribute to the last white rhinoceros in North Africa, Sudan, guarded by heavily armed rangers, which the artist surrounds with lengths of cloth as if to protect him from impending death, is also tender, but by no means cynical.
