Storyline

Ana bolts from her wedding altar and flies from Venezuela to Paris (in her wedding gown) to realize her dream of becoming a great opera star. The great Parisian director Italo Medici is filming an operatic Cinderella, but will Ana "fit into the glass slipper" before she is deported back to Caracas? The evil, plotting, self-absorbed Celeste tries to thwart Ana, but Ana has a great team in her corner: her Russian voice coach, a wealthy lesbian psychoanalyst, a prescient gay waiter/astrologer, and a voodoo witch doctor. Fun and adventurous. Written by Martin Lewison <lewison+@pitt.edu>

Light-hearted and dreamlike story...
26 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

1st watched 4/26/2002 - 6 out of 10 (Dir-Fina Torres): Light-hearted and dreamlike story of a young Venezualan who runs away from a impending marraige to try and make it in France as an Opera singer. Ariadna Gil, as Ana, is very likeable as the star of this movie and has a charm that captures you as well as a voice that takes you away. She befriends a variety of people, everything from psychics, witch-doctors, and movie-star wannabes which makes for a very mixed bag. Her best friend ends up being a gay psychic who foretells her future and directs her paths. This is the second best character in the movie, next to Ana. He becomes her vision-maker and gently pushes her into her eventual stardom. This movie is really a simple story(girl leaves doldrom life and becomes a star) but the complexities of the characters she comes across broaden the movie's appeal.
