A great assortment of badly told facts, actors who dub the studio song and a sad vision about Elis Regina. In all, a story badly told. Unless you already know the characters, mostly famous Brazilian musicians, I believe it is really hard to understand what is happening and their motivations. For instance, Elis Regina seems to be a happy young singer who suddenly turns into a spoiled unhappy house-wife. She then starting drinking, taking stuff (unclear what she takes, such a superficial approach ) and then she dies.
The main actress tried hard, but could only imitate the laughter of Elis, which she did all the time, even when it did not make sense.
Whoever made this film clearly was based on the same research of the musical (that's a good one) and does not like Elis Regina.
