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

stunning Gina sings Tosca
25 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

the above reviewer has it wrong.As mentioned in the opening credits of this movie,Gina sings ALL the tunes HERSELF!!! and that includes arias from Tosca.Actually,i also thought she had to be dubbed because the voice is too good for any film star but incredibly when i checked the credits thats what it says,its all Gina. This is the fictitious story of a real person called Lina Cavalieri who was known at the time as "the most beautiful woman in the world". Certainly more perfect casting couldn't be done by casting Gina in the role.She looks absolutely stunning even in turn of the century clothes and in glorious color.The sets are well done and the production pretty good .The story is typical romantic fluff with Gasman playing the beau,with the usual misunderstandings but its all worth just to see the beautiful Gina.
