Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend: Plot, Premiere Date, Cast, Trailer, Filming Location, Review, Where to Watch & More
Lionsgate’s ‘Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend’ follows the incredible true story of Ferruccio Lamborghini who made a name for himself by creating a brand of cars that are loved and revered by car enthusiasts even now. The film starts from the beginning, when Ferruccio was a soldier, freshly returned from the Second World War. Once back home, he changes the course of his life by making decisions that others consider too risky. He is doubted at every turn, and yet he comes out at the top. However, the film ends on a somber note, which makes us wonder about his future.
Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend’s Plot
Ferruccio Lamborghini, whose role was played by Romano Reggiani, went back to his hometown of Cento, Italy, after serving in the military during World War II. Ferruccio’s father was a farmer, and he hoped that he would follow in his footsteps. Still, Ferruccio was more interested in mechanics and wanted to construct tractors instead of continuing the family business. He explained to his father that, during the war, he had built cars for the military, which is why he was more interested in vehicle construction after the war. In the meantime, Ferruccio wed the woman who had become the love of his life, Clelia (played by Hannah van der Westhuizen), who was also carrying his child.
Clelia was pregnant with Ferruccio’s child. After that, Ferruccio and his fellow soldier Matteo came up with the idea to construct tractors and started sketching out ideas for them. However, because there was a lack of money, Ferruccio asked his father to lend him some money so that he could make ends meet. Ferruccio was given the entirety of the funds from the farm sale that his father had mortgaged because his father did not have sufficient funds. Ferruccio and Matteo started work on their brand-new tractors, but at this time, Matteo was distracted by his developing feelings for Annita (played by Mira Sorvino). Ferruccio was the one who engaged in conversation with her because Matteo was too timid to strike up a conversation with a female. Matteo knew that Annita did not care for him but that she enjoyed conversing with Ferruccio.
On the other hand, Ferruccio was devoted to his wife, Clelia, and waited for the birth of their kid. However, on the day that Ferruccio expected his child to be born, he arrived home late and learned that his wife had been admitted to the hospital. Although Clelia had just given birth to a handsome kid, she did not survive postpartum bleeding and passed away. Ferruccio was distraught, but he managed to pull himself together, and after a few days, he met up with his friend Matteo. They were having dinner at a restaurant when Annita walked in and joined them there. Ferruccio parted ways with Matteo to allow him to speak with Annita, but Annita instead approached Ferruccio.
Ferruccio was surprised when Annita admitted to him that he was the only person who could get her attention. Because of this, Ferruccio saw that Annita had the potential to become his wife and care for his son Tonino after his previous wife passed away. The tension became too much for Matteo, and their once-warm friendship turned bitter. The story moved forward to 1963, when Ferruccio Lamborghini, played by Frank Grillo, opened his own tractor business, but Matteo was not there. Matteo had left for Italy. It’s possible that Ferruccio and Matteo went their separate ways because of a fight they had over Annita. Now that we have your attention let’s find out what became of Annita and Ferruccio Lamborghini.

The action-packed motion picture features a drag race between a red Ferrari Mondial and a blue Lamborghini Countach. On the other hand, car enthusiasts assert that the facts do not support this statement. When the Mondial was introduced, Enzo Ferrari was already in his 80s; therefore, it is unlikely that he would have been able to compete in a car race against Lamborghini then.
Intriguingly, it also provides some insight into the development of the illustrious Miura sports car and the origin of the bull symbol used for Lamborghini automobiles.
Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend: Review
In a runtime of fewer than ninety minutes, writer and director Bobby Moresco endeavors to tell the story of the personal and professional lives of Ferruccio Lamborghini, the son of a farmer who became one of the most prominent manufacturers of luxury automobiles in the world. Moresco’s subject is Ferruccio Lamborghini, who became one of the world’s premier manufacturers of luxury automobiles. As a direct consequence, Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend only skims the subject’s surface.
The story can be broken down into two distinct parts. At the film’s beginning, Romano Reggiani stars as a younger version of Ferruccio, who builds a successful tractor business with little more than an idea and a great deal of drive. The second part follows an older Ferruccio, played by Frank Grillo, as he constructs a revolutionary sports automobile with much more than simply an idea behind it. Regarding what occurs to this man before, during, and after all of this, the screenplay that Moresco wrote is in far too much of a hurry to get to the character’s significant accomplishments to even hint at the biographical facts of this man’s life.
Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend: Production
It is remarkable how little we learn about the man, his connections, his business, and his life throughout this abridged story. There are a few love interests involved in it. In the first, a younger version of Ferruccio returns to his Italian village after serving in World War II to make a marriage proposal to his childhood sweetheart Clelia and, presumably, to marry her (Hannah van der Westhuizen). Because he was so focused on designing and constructing a better tractor with his best buddy Matteo (Matteo Leoni), he neglected his wife, which led to her untimely death, and he ended up losing his best friend in the process.
In the 1960s, the older Ferruccio remarried and once again neglects Annita (Mira Sorvino), the second wife, with his womanizing and new obsession to beat Enzo Ferrari (Gabriel Byrne), who rejects Ferruccio’s offer to build a better sports car. In the 1960s, the older Ferruccio remarried and again neglected Annita (Mira Sorvino). Suppose the running—well, driving—and ham-fisted metaphor of the two car makers racing each other is any indicator. In that case, that rivalry looks more significant to Moresco than it is in this history. This biography focuses on Moresco’s career as a race car driver.
The entirety of the film seems to be hunting for some simple hook, although the amount of material contained inside the narrative is quite restricted, as are the perspectives on it. If what transpired at an accusing and anticlimactic dinner with his adult son is to be believed, then Ferruccio not only loses his financial success and worldwide celebrity along the line, but he also appears to have lost much more than that. Since most of the story focuses on the younger man’s business transactions and the older man’s administration of his dream project, it isn’t easy to locate any emotional core to this topic that is brought up so explicitly.
Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend rushes through the subject’s career high points, leaving everyone and everything else in the dust as it does. After the film, there is almost no sense of the man, and the only thing that even reminds us of the tale is the sight of several gorgeous vehicles.
Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend: Cast
Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend is an all-new movie produced by Lionsgate and scheduled to be released in theaters on November 18, 2022. To discuss the film, we met with its star, Frank Grillo, and its writer and director, Bobby Moresco.
In the documentary Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend, Ferruccio Lamborghini, the company’s namesake, and founder, recounts his life story. Frank Grillo, Eliana Jones, and Mira Sorvino are the three main characters in the film, which was written and directed by Bobby Moresco.
Although there are instances when the movie feels like a traditional biography, it manages to keep you interested the whole time. The film’s pace picks up after Grillo’s character, an older version of Ferruccio is introduced to the audience. The fact that Ferruccio was responsible for so much more than just owning “Lamborghini” piqued my interest in his life narrative to the point where I couldn’t stop thinking about it. He already had a great deal, but it didn’t stop him from wanting more. The author, Bobby Moresco, did an excellent job structuring it so that it follows the chronological order and still manages to tell the narrative well. In what is easily the best performance of his career, Grillo is on par with Ferruccio Lamborghini’s level of brilliance. This movie is a thrill ride because of the production, especially the vehicles and the set.
Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend was the topic of conversation when Hidden Remote spoke with the film’s writer and director, Bobby Moresco, and the film’s star, Frank Grillo.
