The most moving Opera in the History
Since I saw EVITA for the first time I knew that would be my favourite movie I would ever see in my life. I don't know why it does mean so much to me, maybe because is the story of a woman who, even if you are atheous, you would see become a saint. She died when she was 33, like Christ or Alexander the great, and Madonna embodies so wonderfully the part of a girl that comes from nothing and becomes an idol, that you can't distinguish the life of Madonna from the Eva's one. Then the movie is so well done, the cinematography is so beautiful, scenography takes your breathe away and costumes are simply wonderful!And the music: is so moving, it expresses exactly the feelings of the charachters and lyrics are really incredible in the way they can give a complete introspection to the charachters. I always listen to the soundtracks and I've seen the film unnumerable times and any time I learn something new. Eva's final broadcast is simply fantastic, is full of emotions. I love you must love me and the valzer scene. The fact is that only who really love music and epic stories can really aprreciate this movie. EVITA will be loved only by those who deeply feel his contents, so those people won't never lose the strong emotions watching it. Madonna has so much to teach, and few people share this idea, and I will always say she is one of the greatest artist ever lived. Remember: BETTER TO WIN BY ADMITTING MY SIN THAN TO LOSE WITH THE HALO. You'd say that's not the point of view of a saint, I'd say it's exactly the point of view of a person that has so much to say, and both Rice and Webber understood. Thanks to all who believe in the power of Art.
