I would like to recommend a film I just saw about the life of diva Maria Callas.
Titled 'Callas Forever' it tells a fictional story of the reclusive opera singer coming out of exile to make a film of the opera Carmen, using her older recordings as her voice had gone. The mythical film within a film looks fantastic and you can only wonder what might have been had such a thing been real.
I must admit to having my doubts about the quality of the story but I was pleasantly surprised by this great film. French actress Fanny Ardent playing Callas was simply brilliant and my wife and I watched it twice in a row it (and she) was so good !
Even if you don't like opera it is still a good story, well told and acted.
Anyone else seen this movie and what did you think ?
