Ennio: Giuseppe Tornatore’s tribute to a genius of our time

Innovative. Enigmatic. Genius. The significant exception to all rules.  The documentary by Giuseppe Tornatore throws us into the profoundly entertaining, exhausting and magical life of the Italian composer Ennio Morricone. Born in 1928, Morricone wrote over 500 scores for films and television, from Sergio Leone’s Once Upon a Time in the West, Tornatore’s Cinema Paradiso to Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, for which he won an Oscar in 2016.
