Storyline

Once upon a time, the great soprano Sophia Maier conquered the world with her voice, her beauty and the legend she carefully built around herself. Now only the legend remains- the diva herself hasn't performed for years, nor been seen in the glittering circles of society she once dominated. But the woman who fascinated and thrilled the world for so long would like to crown her career with one more triumph. And she'll use every dirty trick she knows to achieve it.

Not bad but
14 December 2020 | by MovieIQTestSee all my reviews

The script suffered a weakness then further compromised by a mediocre directing. The casting job was pretty good. Viewers who like opera would be glad to find out the opera scenes in this movie were quite good, quite a treat! The voice over for the two females and the young male actor looked pretty seamless, especially the young female's voice quality was superb. The storyline was a bit lame. Also, it seems that "The Queen of Spade" was the older diva, not the younger one.

*There's typo in the short description of the movie:

"...and finds a win it back", it should be "and finds a way to win it back"

Also, Kseniya Rappoport's marriage year is 2016, not 201? Quote: Spouse (1) Dmitriy Borisov (201? - present) Quote: "In 2014 she met restaurateur Dmitriy Borisov. As of February 2016, they were married for some time."
