It was bad until it reached the melodramatic-tango-roxanne, which for me, reached a whole new level of cheesiness in cinema history. Really disastrous movie for me. What a waste of money, actors, musicians, and over all, what a waste of Nicole Kidman!
“This story is about truth, beauty, freedom; but above all things, this story is about love”
The musical is turned on its head with the use of popular music in new contexts, so if you can stomach the frenetic first 15 minutes, the rest will play itself out as beautiful operatic romance laced with tragedy.
