Roger EbertFull Review Good There's nothing groundbreaking about this documentary. It is a straight-down-the-line talking-heads-and-archival-footage deal, and it does not take any interesting annotative digressions. The acceleration of the career is as fascinating to watch as the artistry is moving to hear.
Slant MagazineFull Review Average Despite the film's tendency to skirt along the surface of Pavarotti's personal life, when the man himself is on screen, his undeniable magnetism, irreverent sense of humor, and humble appreciation for his own natural talents is evident, especially in the interviews he gives to the press.
