Product Description

Product Description

Selena

Amazon.ca

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

I wasn't familar with the real Selena before this movie (I was a few months short of being 9 years old when she died) and my whole family is mainly white and all my parents listened to when I was growing up was country.
But I saw this movie in 97 when it first came out and I loved this movie. I still love it now almost 18 but it does make me a little sad to think that she was just starting to rise up to the top and fufilling all her goals and then she was killed.
I saw a taping of the real Selena in concert and it made me love this movie more when I saw how dead on they got to the outfits to the little hand moments when she was performing to just the whole presence. So dead on in fact, in a few scenes I doubt you could tell the difference between Jen and Selena. Being the first thing I had ever seen Jennifer Lopez in, it is still my favorite I think only she could pull it off I can't even imagine anyone coming close. I think if they didn't get Jen as Selena it wouldn't be convincing thus not being so popular.
It's a great portrayal of a great artist and I recommend anyone watching it that hasn't. But if you have but don't own it, I recommend buying it.

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!!!

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

Having been a Selena fan since before her senseless death, I was so happy to hear a movie about her life was being made. Like everyone else, this film absolutely broke my heart all over again, like the day i found out about her death on 3/31/95.Since then I became a Selena collector. I have so much footage abt her, and have been considered a Selena expert. But unfortanately I have yet to purchase the Selena movie, just because seeing someone else portray her, is unneccesary when there is so much great footage of the real Selena.
Jennnifer Lopez seemed to work really hard on the role, but unfortantely in my opinion had a phoniness appearance to her in the film, also her dancing and movements on stage seemed a bit rough, overly dramatic, and a bit stiff. In my opinion Jennifer lacks a genuinity and charisma that seemed to just flow out of Selena. The scene where Selena wins the grammy and gives her speech, was very different in real life, no where near as sappy. Selena wasnt really like that. On stage Selena was comfortable and graceful and offstage a joking and humble young woman. Maybe Im being biased, but either way I think Edward James Olmos was excellent in the film as well as the actress who played Selena's mother.
The only part of the movie that I love is the end when they play Selena's dreaming of you and you see real clips of her. Therefore i would advise for people wanting to know about Selena to buy the documentary on her Selena Remembered or her last concert, both wonderful and truly touching. Also get her Amor Prohibido and Dreaming of you cd....which are so beautiful just as she was. This woman was absolutely amazingly talented up there with Madonna, Janet Jackson, and Shakira. But unique and maybe more amazing then all three combined. She had the full package, the voice, the dancing, the physical beauty, and the wonderful spirit needed to become an unforgettable entertainer. Unforgotten she is .God bless her soul.
