All the elements are there but somehow they just don't go together.

The plot is simplistic and the dialogue is wooden.Is the story based on somebody in real life or is it complete fiction? Is it really that easy to break into the operatic big time? I mean there almost are (operatic) echoes of Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney. Nevertheless there are some dramatic and musical moments. The film work is excellent. It should get an 8 but I couldn't muster more than a 5.
