Amazing documentary
3 October 2000 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I just want to say that this is one of the best documentaries that I've seen! It's about the portuguese singer Amália Rodrigues who's a legend in Europe and throughout the world. This film is beautifully put together and includes clips from early on when she was young to her last performances in the 90's. It's amazing that they got so much footage of her and some of the clips are just incredible. I was totally blown away by Amalia Rodrigues' voice. I see now why so many people around the world love her. She sings the fado, the soulful music of portugal and her presence is absolutely magical. There's also a short introduction by David Byrne who is clearly an Amalia admirer. Well, I guess that so am I. After I saw this film I went out and got a bunch of her CD's.
