‘Farinelli’

Belgian filmmaker Gerard Corbiau’s 1994 film is in the grand European tradition of the sweeping, epic historical romance. “Farinelli” is actually a triumph of taut control and superb structuring. Farinelli (Stefano Dionisi, pictured) is a blessing to his older composer brother Riccardo (Enrico Lo Verso), whose work shows off Carlo’s amazing voice, which quickly captivates all of Europe (TMC early Thursday at 2:30 a.m.)
