Great movie!! Just LOVED "Elis"!!
16 January 2017 | by luisamsfSee all my reviews

What a beautiful and touching movie! The sensitiveness of the director amazed me as he was able to show this great singer as an idol and a human being at the same time. It must have been tough to choose what events of her life to tell in only two hours as she's gone through so many things during her short lived life, but he was able to stay true to who she was and to show how she evolved from a talented young singer, to major success, and her early death fighting her own demons. No words to describe Andrea Horta!!! What an amazing and powerful acting!! Elis lived again through her. Beautiful photography, arts and costume designs!! A must see!!
