A great film about a great artist.
8 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

A touching portrait of one of Brazil's most iconic performers, beautifully photographed by Adrian Teijido and very well directed by Hugo Prata, who not only dominates the technical aspects of filmmaking, but also knows how to play with the language of music throughout his film. Andreia Horta shines as the troubled but yet brilliant singer. Julio Andrade surprises as a particularly spirited Lennie Dale. Besides great performances, the film leads you through the beginnings of MPB (Popular Brazilian Music) and what it meant to Brazil as a nation facing military dictatorship.

I definitely recommend Elis to anyone who appreciates good music, fascinating characters and great entertainment.
