Movie synopsis
Madonna tackles the title role in Alan Parker's ambitious recounting of the brief, amazing life of former Argentine first lady Eva Per�n. Presented almost entirely in song and narrated by Antonio Banderas as a fictional everyman, the film charts the alternately revered and reviled Evita's rise from poverty to become a film and radio actress; her relationship with President Juan Per�n (Jonathan Pryce); and her tragic death from cancer at age 33.Banderas, a surprisingly moving singer, and the inimitable Madonna, who took voice lessons before filming commenced to expand her vocal range, provide the emotional bedrock for the eminently enjoyable film with their charismatic screen presences. The music, including the Oscar-winning song "You Must Love Me," weaves an entrancing web, and the sets and costumes are awe inspiring. Parker does a fine job of adapting Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical for the big screen. The director's vision shines clearly here: Like PINK FLOYD: THE WALL, EVITA is an enchanting mixture of epic fairy tale and sociopolitical psychodrama.

Editorial reviews

"...A stunningly crafted objet d'art that evokes serious viewer admiration....Director Alan Parker has done a dazzling job creating screen images to accompany the wall-to-wall music..."
Variety - Todd McCarthy (12/16/1996)

"...Madonna, who took voice lessons to extend her range, easily masters the musical material. As importantly, she is a convincing Evita..."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (01/01/1997)

Madonna Plays Argentina's Eva Peron

Review For: Evita (DVD, 1998, Widescreen Spanish)

"Evita" is a musical portrayal of the amazing life of former Argentine First Lady Eva Perón (Madonna). Madonna, with all of her talent, good looks, and energy, is perfect for this rendition of "Evita" since it is presented almost entirely as a musical; with the exception that it is narrated by Antonio Banderas.

The film chronicals both the beloved and rejected Evita's rise from poverty to become a radio and film star, and then First Lady of Argentina. It also gives us a glimpse of her relationship with President Juan Perón (Jonathan Pryce). How the Argentinian people grieved for her when she died from cancer at age 33.

The music took an Oscar for the winning theme song, "You Must Love Me." Director Parker adapts composer Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical for the big screen magnificently. Don't think that it isn't political.

EVITA

Review For: Evita (DVD, 1998, Widescreen Spanish)

Although this movie did not pan out quite as good as the hopes of critics,
it is still a pretty good performance and good for a nights entertainment.
Its easy to see Adolf Hitler s long shadow hanging over this true story about
power and fame. In 1930 s Argentina, small town girl Evita (Madonna) enters
show business, becomes a star and ends up married to President Juan Peron
(Jonathan Pryce). Her position as the nations most beloved woman makes her a
martyr upon her death. The perplexed Che (Antonio Banderas) narrates the story
always looking at Evita as the girl that he loved and adored, but amazed that
she takes the money and power instead of his love. Dancing and music are
truly great in the movie as Evita moves up the Power Steps from a young girl
to the heights of adoration by the Agentinian people.

Musical

Review For: Evita (DVD, 1998, Widescreen Spanish)

This is a musical and I mean a musical. From the beginning to the end it is almost entirely in song. Madonna plays the part well and my kids couldn't even tell it was her even though they knew it was. Of course the character Madonna plays looks nothing like her in real life. Juan Perrone looks quite a bit different in real life as well. Taking place in the 1920s through the 1940s they used period vehicles and did a good job on the set. Some of the scenes really felt as if they were filmed in the 1930s. I didn't like the way the DVD menu cycle is set up. This disk has Spanish subtitles capability and it was done fairly well in my opinion.

It is useful to know that they start out in an Argentine theater and they break in to announce that Eva Parrone has died and they for the most part shut Argentina down for the "spiratual leader." Then they go back to the 1920s and explain her life finally ending up where the picture begins.

Evita DVD

Review For: Evita (DVD, 1998, Widescreen Spanish)

Terrific acting performance by Banderas and Madonna. If you are a fan of musicals (I am) and a fan of the Webber/Rice Evita (I am) this is a treat. Madonna definitely has the range to carry off her musical part, Banderas singing is good, singing by the rest of the cast is ok I would highly recommend this for the music alone. Surprise treat is short musical scene with Gary Brooker from Procol Harum fame. Not a movie for young kids, modest violence and frequent suggestive sexual content and some not too risque language.

Great Movie

Review For: Evita (DVD, 1998, Widescreen Spanish)

This is the inspiring story of Eva Peron. Her rags to riches story set to music is not only moving but inspiring. Great performances by Madonna and Antonio Banderas.
