A candid portrait of an unique woman
4 July 2006 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Tony Barbon and Sean Cameron, the directors of this marvelous piece, in the form of an interview with Debbie Reynolds, have achieved in giving the viewer, an uncanny portrait of a charming woman who has brought joy to millions. The conversation with the incomparable Robert Osborne, illuminates on a life of this generous personality who talks about her life and her career with honesty and charm.

Debbie Reynolds, the actress, has been involved in movies for a long time. Ms. Reynolds always projected a sunny personality that made her an old time favorite because her versatility and range. She could do it all. The exchange with her host, Mr. Osborn, flows easily. Her triumphs and her disappointments are all dealt with such honesty that one feels for her and what she has gone through.

Ultimately, Debbie Reynolds emerges as the survivor that she is and we get to hear from her directly how she confronted adversity. The film clips illuminate the career of a great woman, and we are privileged to have been "invited" to a front row seat to witness a life she has given to her art and her public.
