The hit musical based on the life of Evita Duarte, a B-picture Argentinian actress who eventually became the wife of Argentinian president Juan Perón, and the most beloved and hated woman in Argentina.
This was shot as a student film. Madonna was unknown at the time but demanded she be paid for her work. The director required her to sign a release and paid her 100 dollars for her work. Later when Madonna became successful she tried to ban the movie. The director refused citing the release she signed - -which only arose from her insistence to be paid. See more »
Opening disclaimer: A Certain Sacrifice is a rare piece of music history. Originally shot on Super 8mm in 1979, this film exhibits a raw and intimate experimental film style. Due to the limitations of the original medium, some technical inconsistencies may be apparent. See more »
This is Madonna's film debut according to the DVD cover- And if she was the only one to ever be involved in film again, justice was almost served. This movie is terrible- from the talentless acting, a worthless script, horrible sound, and poor quality of the film in general, you will definitely want your hour back (which is how long this movie really is, although it seems like eternity) There is only one somewhat cool part of this whole movie, and that is the song at the climax. The 20 year-old Madonna shows a bit of flesh, but who hasn't seen her breasts by now? As magnificent as they may be, it's hardly worth sitting through this- skip right to the end, enjoy the song, and save yourself the other 55 minutes of suffering through the rest of the movie
