Critic Reviews for Dalida
A sentimentalized, shallow biopic that looks and sounds better than it is.
Despite running just over two hours, there is almost no sense of who Dalida was beyond the private lover and the public performer.
One has to wonder who Dalida is even for, as it seems wholly disinterested in exploring Dalida as a character or celebrating her legacy as a musician.
Dalida is one of those biographies that transcends the artist on screen and gives the viewer much more than a peep into her life; it gives them a full view of how she was, who she was, of her feelings, and what led to her becoming such an icon ...
American audiences, at least, can be excused for muttering "I don't get it" after watching this strained, dull and charisma-starved portrait of the international singing sensation.
Audience Reviews for Dalida
The impeccable direction, dynamic editing and magnetic performance by the stunning Sveva Alviti compensate for a script that deserved a bit more polishing, even though it is efficient in the way it uses Dalida's songs to organically comment on episodes of the character's tragic life.
