Product Details

Product Description


Gregory Nava (Why Do Fools Fall In Love?) directs this more-or-less official film biography of the late Mexican-American singer, Selena Quintanilla Perez (the film is coproduced by her father), which emphasizes sentimentality over conflict and plays down the star's horrific death at the hands of a deranged fan. Jennifer Lopez is quite good as Selena, whose roots we come to know through the story of her father (Edward James Olmos), a Corpus Christi singer who was rejected by white audiences. The script focuses primarily on Selena's inspiring rise, and it tries to muster some sense of urgent conflict over not-particularly-contentious issues (such as her relationship with a guitarist). But Olmos does a fine job portraying the elder Perez as a possessive sort, and the music and general buoyancy of Lopez's performance are infectious. The unavoidable subject of Selena's killer--a woman who happened to be the president of her fan club--is considerably and oddly downplayed. The film's original widescreen presentation and Dolby soundtrack can be appreciated on the DVD release. --Tom Keogh

3.0 out of 5 stars Selena DVD acheté de Round3 Feb. 17 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dans un premier temps, j'ai reçu le DVD Selena que j'ai acheté de round3 en mauvais état de visionnement. Le visionnement de ce DVD reçu est vraiment mauvais. J'en ai avisé Amazon et le vendeur Round3 et je dois dire que je suis satisfaite de la réponse suite à mon commentaire de déception.

Après les explications de Round3 (le vendeur de ce DVD défectueux) à la soussignée, et selon sa façon de résoudre ce problème que j'ai rencontré avec lui, je dois dire que je suis maintenant safisfaite car le vendeur Round3 me rembourse en totalité mon achat sans problème. Je peux comprendre qu'il vérifie les envois et qu'un mauvais DVD peut se glisser dans sa façon de gérer ses envois à ses clients.

5.0 out of 5 stars Selena July 6 2004
The movie really touched me. Today I'm 26 years old and I didn't know Selena until I watched the movie. Pray for us Selena from up high in Heaven. Selena I think you know what I mean.

5.0 out of 5 stars the angel selena May 25 2004
By mike g
this movie makes me sad! selana was a beautiful singer just becoming popular when i was in junior high then she was tragically killed and her star burned out as fast as it came the movie shows the hardwork of her life growing up traveling and singing with her family only to finally hit it big find love marriage and soon a baby but sadly she was killed by a lunatic obsessed fan jennifer lopezs best acting job by far is in this movie she becomes selena from her gorgeous smile to her funny infantile manner and beautiful voice this movie shows u who selena was an angel

5.0 out of 5 stars Lopez at her very best!!!!!!! Feb. 4 2004
By Robert
I actually didn't see this film until about 6 months ago when it was on tv late one Sunday night. After watching it i was very impressed and went out straightaway the nexy day and purchased a copy on dvd for myself. Jennifer does an outstanding job portraying Selena, so good in fact that whilst i'm watching it i actually forget it's JLO and think it's the real Selena! She perfected Selena's dance moves right down to a T. The Astrodome recreation is perfect and very close to the real thing. I like the film because every scene builds on from the previous one. Every stage of Selena'a life is documented including her most triumphunt moments such as when she won the Grammy, when "Como La Flor" went to number 1 etc. I highly recommend this film to any Selena fans out there- go out and buy yourself a copy right now, you won't be disappointed!!!
