Stunning! Better than one expects!
The film is grand, combining Lloyd Webber's superb music, Hollywood's
effects, masterfully direction and surprisingly fine actor's work. Antonio
Banderas is a real star in the film; he adds passion, charm and humour to
the story. It's a clever invention of Webber and Rice to introduce a
narrator and commentator who helps the audience understand events better
makes us think. In fact Banderas does more than this. He portraits a
character, angry, criticising, witty and even cynical on the one hand and
very emotional with deep feelings and `impossible dreams' on the other. He
makes Che one of the main heroes of the story. The last scene is very
and tense, as Che confesses his sorrow for Evita and at the same time
Peron of the future. Antonio's Spanish good looks and plasticity suit the
role exactly. His singing is expressive and pleasant to hear, and the
is very strong, good even for the hard parts such as The Lady's Got
Potential (great moment, impossible for the stage). Madonna acts
wonderfully. She really resembles Eva Duarte de Peron, and her performance
is so believable and true that I forget sometimes I'm watching artificial
scenes. I can't see the death scene without tears (How she lived, how she
shined! But how soon the lights were gone!). However I'm not totally
satisfied with Madonna singing. I do not mean that she sings badly, I only
want to say that Elaine Paige sings much better. Nevertheless, some scenes
(I'd Be Good For You, Rainbow High, You Must Love Me) I did like
and her duets with Antonio I simply enjoyed (Goodnight And Thank You is
amusing, Waltz For Eva And Che is so spirited, it's a masterpiece). I also
must mention Jonathan Pryce. He did great job as Peron. His every gesture,
expression and look are correct, matching moments and situations. All
scenes in the movie are impressive and exciting, making you wishing to
the choir (A New Argentina, And Money Kept Rolling In And Out). I decided
watch the movie for the sake of ALW unforgettable music, but soon I found
that Evita is more than a musical on the screen - it's classic. Director,
producer, operators and actors did everything to create a powerful epic
film, revealing struggles, splendour and tragedy of Eva Peron's life as
as giving a touch of unique Argentine 1940s atmosphere. I would earnestly
recommend the film to everyone: it's dynamic, without one unnecessary
moment, very interesting and touching and full of inspiring

A Wonderful Feeling!
I have seen Evita many times along with other musicals, there is
something about it. Once you watch this movie you will be left with a
wonderful feeling. I think the singing in this film is so unique that
my 5 year old will sit and watch it. What also was a well ilked point
was they told the story very fair, in that I mean they did not sugar
coat Eva Peron with some of the things she did in her past. I did not
know who or what Evita was until I saw this movie, it left me with a
need to know more about this amazing woman in history. One point I
thought they could have improved on was what happened after her story
ended. This movie was an inspiring movie to me and with that I have
started a whole new career, I wish the movies would do more with real
life historical figures and show them true to the point. Thank you.
