Format: Blu-ray
A sweeping film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s successful stage musical based on the true-life story of Evita Duarte, a polarizing figure in Argentina, who rose from nothing to eventually become the wife of president Juan Perón. There is very little spoken dialogue in the film that is told primarily through a collection of unforgettable songs, including “Another Suitcase in Another Hall”, “I’d Be Surprisingly Good for You”, “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina”, and the Oscar-winning “You Must Love Me”, just to name a few.

Like the songs, the acting is very strong across the board. Madonna’s long list of prior music videos in her singing career serves her very well here as she embodies the role very convincingly and emotes a plethora of emotions and feelings through song and body actions alone. Antonio Banderas is fiery and handsome as Ché, the narrator, and Jonathan Pryce turns in an observant and memorable performance as president Juan Perón.

Evita features stunning picture quality and an impressively rich audio presentation that delivers the film’s commanding musical soundtrack very well. Special features include a making-of documentary (43 min), Madonna’s “You Must Love Me” music video (3 min) and a teaser trailer (2 min).

Evita successfully moved from the stage to the big screen in a way that is both enjoyable and memorable. Though many like to point out Madonna’s less than stellar acting career, there is no doubt that the role of Evita is one she was born to play. Highly recommended.

We saw the original movie and enjoyed it. This was a gift that a friend requested so I have not viewed it but I'm sure she will.

Although it didn't do well at the box office, I love the music in this Andrew Lloyd Webber production put to film.

VIDEO:

Evita (15th Anniversary Edition) arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.40:1 encode. It is the film adaptation of Tim Rice's and Andrew Lloyd Webber's smash stage musical detailing the life and death of Argentina's controversial First Lady, Eva Peron. The video image is extremely film-like, and remains finely detailed throughout. The extent of detail is most readily observed in the many long shots featuring large groups of people: rallies, military barracks, fancy dining rooms of the upper class. Individual faces are readily distinguishable, as are details of clothing and decor. Colours are rich and saturated.

Evita was shot on location in Buenos Aires and Budapest (where the architecture resembles Buenos Aires of the 1930s). Darius Khondji, nominated for an Oscar in Cinematography, was responsible for the rich warm earth-toned palette. Blacks are very inky. The overall picture is very pleasing. (4.5/5)

AUDIO:

Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's music dominates this wonderful DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. The orchestra has a rich, full presence. But the star of the audio tracks belongs to the sweet voice of Madonna...simply majestic! Her song "You Must Love Me" won an Oscar for Best Original Song for Tim Rice (lyrics) and Andrew Lloyd Webber (music).

Other outstanding songs include "Another Suitcase In Another Hall" and the very poignant "Don't Cry For Me Argentina". Madonna did a very moving tribute to Evita in front of a packed stadium in Buenos Aires during her Sweet and Sour Tour. Besides listening to the 2-CD soundtrack albums, I also recommend you to watch her Sweet and Sour Tour on blu ray (my review elsewhere). Then, you can appreiciate how talented Madonna really is.

Format: DVD
First, I declare my bias: I loved the stage musical. I saw it early on in its London run, and made sure I had a ticket for its final night in London. And I've seen too many movie versions of stage musicals that are just dreadful. So I had low, low expectations for this.
But it is WONDERFUL. Not only was Madonna great, the resonances between her life and Eva's rise to fame gave an added frisson to her performance. Banderas can sing and dance a storm, and the tango sequences are enough to convince anyone to join a dance class. And there was at least some attention drawn to the repressive nature of the Peronistas, which wasn't - or couldn't be - done on stage.
Anything bad? Sure. The dreadful reallocation of 'Another Suitcase' to Eva rather than to Peron's mistress. But I can forgive this in light of the sublime 'You Must Love Me', new for the movie, and a wonderfully double-edged lyric masterpiece.
Don't just buy this: play it again and again!

I've tried to watch this film several times, but I always abandon it about halfway through, from either boredom, or Madonna's irritating warbling. I finally decided to really try and get through the whole thing, and....I just can't. Madonna is probably a nice lady. She's made some very danceable songs. But, she cannot act, and, she does not have the vocal chops to pull off this role. She certainly should be credited for possessing an abundance of confidence, and she looks convincing as Eva Peron. But, it is obvious she was chosen for her popularity. This is one of those cases where they put together popular stars, big budget, and all the ingredients that should make a great film, and, they made a boring one. I really don't know who they should have chosen to play Evita, but, they needed an actress with skill, soul, and a great voice, and instead, they chose the Pop Tart Of The Century. Admit it, it may not be totally lousy, but, it should have been a whole lot better. The film that does the play justice has yet to be made.
