Storyline

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 Guy Bellinger

One good scene
9 January 2007 | by videogods69See all my reviews

One good scene-the suicide scene, she made it look so beautiful. You are right who ever you are when you said that the actress was a far cry from Dalida but she did give it her best and you get some sense of this beautiful lovely creature that went by too fast like a comet and died. The early Egyptian scenes were interesting and I LOVED the scene in her home town that portrayed all her neighbors and friends dancing to a small 45 player on the unpaved streets of that suburb. The long dialog scenes were a bit of a drag and I wish they would have shown her winning Miss Egypt in 1955 which is the event that propelled her to Europe and super stardom as well...but if you love Dalida as I do you will love this film. Growing up in Israel in the 60's she dominated the charts and has found a warm cosy corner in my heart Toby Ross
