User Reviews

A completely fictional account of the famous love affair
18 September 2011 | by pabloruizpicassoSee all my reviews

First of all I would like to comment on the other review - the author has a very little knowledge about the lives of Callas and Onassis and for that reason thinks that the film follows their story 'faithfully'. This film is based VERY loosely on the famous love affair of Callas and Onassis and it is a complete fiction. It may very well be entertaining for the viewers who know nothing about the protagonists but unfortunately these very viewers will remain with completely wrong ideas about them. I don't understand why didn't the makers of the film use fictional names since they had changed thoroughly the facts in the story.
