Giuseppe Tornatore, director of the beloved CINEMA PARADISO, turns his camera on his longtime collaborator Ennio Morricone (1928 – 2020) in a moving and comprehensive profile of the indefatigable composer. Tornatore’s documentary portrait examines the breadth of the maestro’s career, from his early Italian pop songs to the fistful of unforgettable film scores that he wrote, including THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY, THE THING, DAYS OF HEAVEN, and hundreds of others. Packed with insightful commentary from Morricone’s collaborators and contemporaries, ENNIO affords the master one last chance to recount his career and deconstruct his artistic process.
“A painstakingly detailed, fantastically entertaining… deep dive”
“An ideal tribute.”
