Lady Gaga (LG) delivers a stellar performance as the female lead, Patrizia Gucci. Her character is melodramatic, yet full of charisma, loaded with personality, undeniable sexy magnetism, and total immersion into her Italian character. This is no surprise since LG’s heritage is Italian-American. Make no mistake, House of Gucci is LG's movie, and so different, but no less impressive, from her famed debut role in A Star is Born.
Directed by Ridley Scott, everything about this movie is first rate: set design, cinematography, and high fashion wardrobes expected in the rich and extravagant Gucci world. Is this a true depiction of wealthy Italians in the 90's with their flashy cars and glamorous parties? I do not have a clue. But I really admire the director and his eye for the lifestyle shown in the movie, he sure sold me. The fact that the movie is based on a true story is both fascinating and intriguing and I believe the Gucci-case is something extra ordinary and not something most American have heard about. All news to me.
