Reviews

Dvd-versie van de verfilmde musical van Alan Parker. Met in de hoofdrollen Madonna, Antonio Banderas en Jonathan Price, muziek van Andrew Lloyd Webber en teksten van Tim Rice. De musical vertelt het levensverhaal van de Argentijnse presidentsvrouw Evita Perron die in 1952 overleed. De pers was wisselend in haar oordeel. Vooral het beroemde lied 'Don't cry for my Argentina' wordt als hoogtepunt gezien en werd bekroond met een Oscar. De Volkskrant vindt de film: 'Een vet spektakel waarbij horen en zien je vergaat.' NRC: 'Een cinematografisch ballet vol aansprekende bijna kitsch.' De Amerikaanse kranten waren positief tot laaiend enthousiast. De dvd bevat diverse interessante extra's zoals biografische informatie en live interviews met o.a. de hoofdrolspelers, videoclip, Madonna feature en fotogallery.
