THE STORY OF STAR ITALIAN TENOR, ANDREA BOCELLI
Filmed in Italy – English soundtrack
Known for his interpretations of famous opera arias and the masterpiece “Time to Say Goodbye”, Andrea Bocelli’s autobiography THE MUSIC OF SILENCE tells his story through his alter ego, Amos Bardi.
Amos Bardi‘s life is full of challenges from an early age. He was born in a small village near Tuscany with the gift of a beautiful voice but an illness which leaves him almost blind. Amos is separated from his family to learn braille at an institute, where he suffers an unfortunate accident causing him to completely lose his sight.
Despite everything, Amos refuses to give up. Music gives him passion and guides him. Eventually Amos’s incredible voice wins adulation locally, and ultimately worldwide. THE MUSIC OF SILENCE is the heartwarming true story about a man who discovers himself and others against the odds through the pursuit of beauty.
