Storyline

Francesco Pannofino. Martin Umbach. Tamer Karadagli. Marco Antonio Costa. What do all of these men have in common? They are the international voices of acclaimed actor George Clooney. Being George Clooney is a feature length documentary that delves into the creative, often humorous world of audio dubbing a Hollywood motion picture. Just who are these voices behind that famous face? The film explores both the personal lives of these voice artists and their lives as George Clooney's "alter ego". Being George Clooney is the first film to go behind the scenes to dubbing studios in Los Angeles, Berlin, Rome and Mumbai. The film shows us the problems, the processes and the personalities that translate an American hit into an international blockbuster, and asks the question-what is it like Being George Clooney.

A charming glimpse into a little-known world
16 September 2018 | by gregjbrown-93195See all my reviews

I took a chance this film on a flight, and stumbled across the world of dubbing, a fascinating art form blending acting, incredible attention to detail and technique.

Highly recommended this pleasant documentary for an easy watch and some humourous moments.
