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 literally hundreds (!) of others. Packed with insightful commentary from Morricone’s collaborators and contemporaries, Ennio “suggests the late composer is worthy of comparison to Mozart and Bach”–David Ehrlich, Indiewire. “Ennio leaves one wanting to rewatch dozens of movies, dig up more for the first time, and scour the internet for Italian pop records that may never have been released on these shores. Thank goodness Mario Morricone talked his son out of going to med school.”–John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter.

In English and in Italian, French, Portuguese and Chinese with English subtitles.
