Storyline

Rome, 1905. Lina, a music hall singer, has fallen in love with Sergei, a Russian prince. Maestro Doria, who gives her voice lessons and who hopes to make her his mistress, takes her to Paris where she becomes the star of the "Folies-Plastiques". Sergei finds Lina back in the French capital and, as a play and game, makes her his mistress. When she understands the truth Lina runs away with tenor Silvani. Mad with jealousy, Doria kills Silvani and the young singer who thinks Sergei is responsible for Silvani's death, decides to devote her life to her career. Going from success to success, Lina arrives one day in Saint Petersburg where she is to sing before the Tsar. There she meets Sergei again... Written by Guy Bellinger

It's no lie
28 May 1999 | by (southern Ontario) – See all my reviews

This film's Italian title is "The Most Beautiful Woman In The World", and with that 10 inch waist of hers, Gina Lollobrigida is easily the prima of the world's prime donne. If you want to mix bellezza with your opera, you can't go wrong here.
