Critic Reviews for Elis

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

  • Its episodic nature and refusal to clarify who, what or when means that it lacks a cohesive, coherent narrative, with Regina's songs serving as the only connective tissue.

  • A charismatic character that the film trivializes in the conventions of a biopic and a visual and dramatic treatment that navigates between the torn soap opera and the superficial telefilm. [Full Review in Spanish]

    Dec 28, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Prata endows his images with the convincing texture of a journey through time, but the story is content to be a didactic synthesis of a complex trajectory. [Full Review in Spanish]

  • [Andréia Horta] dazzles mimicking the southern singer, Elis. [Full review in Spanish]

  • As the credits rolled, I found myself hoping that someone will soon create a documentary about this remarkable woman, in the mold of Amy or 20 Feet From Stardom, that does her legacy the justice it so rightly deserves.

  • It's an interesting take on the public and personal lives of a national icon.
