Released: 1996

Reviewed: 12.22.09
Star rating: 2 out of 5

Madonna (Eva), Antonio Banderas (Che), Jonathan Pryce (Juan), Jimmy Nail (Agustin Magaldi), Victoria Sus (Dona), Olga Merediz (Blanca), Maria Hidalgo (Young Eva), Julian Littman (Brother Juan).

Set in 1930’s Argentina, small-town girl Evita enters show business, becomes a B-movie star, and ends up married to President Juan Peron. Antonio Banderas narrates the story of her rise to fame and elevation to martyr in death.

As a disclaimer up front I have to say I’m not much of a musical fan and although I enjoy some of Madonna’s music, I’m not a big fan of hers either. I started trying to watch this film and just couldn’t do it. The film didn’t hold any interest for me at all with opera type music some of which was a bit difficult to understand.

What I did see of the film looked to be of decent quality with nice camera work, sets, and backgrounds. Acting consisted of singing and while Madonna can obviously sing, many of the others either couldn’t or shouldn’t. Banderas actually did better than I would have expected but I still think he should stick to acting.

In the end, I really can’t say much about the film since I didn’t watch much of it. Read some other reviews for better advice on this one and, good luck!
