Madonna destroyed the role. she made Eva sympathetic. thats like making a musical about Hitler and making him a nice guy.

Madonna couldnt act the role and vocally thy had to adjust far too many songs.

Patti owns the role. always will.

Madonna for me. She did an amazing job, IMHO. Antonio Banderas stole the show, though. :D


Really? I never liked him.
Madonna's got a voice like tinfoil. Not much substance.

He bugged me. Kept looking AT the camera and just sounded like Antonio Banderas the entire time. I think High Flying Adored was his only real good song.

Wrong she didn't make it sympathetic, the producer and director did with the daft idea of giving her "another suitcase another hall".

Che is the Narrator of the story. He is looking at the camera because he is addressing the audience... most of the time.

Yes, but there are other ways of adressing the audience of the movie than staring at them...at least the way he was doing it.

For me it would be a choice between Patti and Elena Roger. It's true that Patti has the pipes to belt her part as needed but I think that Elena Roger's part is growing on me.
