Iolanda Giliotti, born in Egypt to an Italian immigrant, rose to the top of stardom as a singer under the stage name of Dalida, but lived a roller-coaster personal life, the downs finally outweighing the ups and finally leading to her suicide at age 54. Accumulating hit songs ("Bambino", "Gondolier", "Paroles Paroles " "Avec le temps"), and even recognized as an actress (her dream in the first place) thanks to Youssef Chahine's "The Sixth Day", she was only occasionally happy but remained childless despite her will to become a mother. She loved many men (Lucien Morisse, Jean Sobieski, Luigi Tenco, Bernard Chanfray) but never managed to find the balance she was after. After one or two failed suicide attempts, she finally managed to take her own life, leaving thousands of fans disconsolate. Written by
I really don't understand why some people were so negative in their appraisal of this movie. I thought it was amazingly well-done, and in fact have watched it numerous times. It got to the point that I was calling friends over and forcing them to watch it with me, which I normally never do for a movie! In short, the acting was sensational ... you really feel for Ferilli as she's portraying all the twists and turns in Dalida's life. As for the moving being two fast ... it's a woman's entire life in two DVDs!! Be reasonable ... how much do you expect them to be able to fit in? Anyway, I say "Excellent Work!" and ... when is it coming out on DVD in North America? ;)
