Argentina's answer to EVITA
14 May 1999 | by (Miami & Sao Paulo, BR) – See all my reviews

EVA PERON was Argentina's official submission to the 1996 Oscars for Best Foreign Film. It was obviously spawned by the filming of EVITA with Madonna, in Argentina. A self-proclaimed Argentinian vesion of the "true" Eva Peron saga, (though some Argentinians will insist the not always accurate EVITA is actually closer to the truth, and more importantly, tells Eva's story more interesting) EVA PERON is no memorable epic. It suffers badly from comparison with EVITA on virtually all counts, not the least of which is the all too obvious low, low budget, which makes the film seem amateurish. Its saving grace is ESTHER GORIS. This wonderful Argentine actress makes the best of the script she was handed. Check her out in the recently release DONA BARBARA, in the title role. In that infinitely more spectacular, and better written Argentine film,(EVA PERON resembles a 60's TV theater feature, not even proper cinema) she is riveting. That performance suggests how much better EVA PERON would have been, if only the gifted Goris had been given a good script. Rent it only if you (as I and many do) want to see more of Esther Goris, or if you're a fan of Argentine cinema.
