EP 222 (159/365) House of Gucci

Wealth. made.. inherited… acquired.. lost… House of Gucci takes you through the twists and turns in the family business empire.. based on a book by Sara Gay Forden a true story about the Gucci family…. What money does to people and what lack of it does…

I did not have a lot of expectations going to watch.. but it was worth it… It has a pretty fascinating star cast…. Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons.. and then until I reached home and checked.. I did not know that Jared Leto has played Paolo Gucci…

All through the movie I was trying to figure out who is acting as Paolo… That was some real makeover…

What got stuck with me is that even after Maurizio Gucci once deciding to leave his family fortune.. he ends up coming back and end up losing his life to it… Like every choice made by you also leads one through the same corridors…. Personally my knowledge of the business empire was practically nil and so I watched the movie without having much knowledge of what is going to happen…

Some movies are starting points for you to start exploring and back home I started reading about the events unfolded from where the film folds… I don’t want to say more and ruin your thrill of watching it..

But I will end with this one note which they mention towards the end of the film… Gucci being one of the most prominent brand owned by one single family at one time.. it does not have any member of Gucci family in it now… Think about it…. There is no Gucci in Gucci
