An enjoyable if standard bio-docu that gives equal weight to Mercedes Sosa's voice, life and politics.
Suffers from its overly insular and hagiographic perspective, but in its best moments it well illustrates the reasons for her musical influence and social importance.
The lack of background information and connective tissue makes the film feel incomplete.
To many she was a saint, but there's only so much adoration one can take before longing for a more down-to-earth perspective.
Alas, all [the] film can do to make its case for Sosa's significance is trot out subjects who compare her to Joan Baez, Ella Fitzgerald, and, most puzzlingly, "Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney in one," without elaboration.
But if a certain sentimentality means that there is a little too much included, the film also benefits from the obvious emotion that the contributors all pour into it.
[T]he documentary succeeds in conveying not just the bare facts of her life, but something of her magic, both to longtime fans and to those less familiar with her work.
A genuinely heartfelt, adequately informative introduction to the life and music of Mercedes Sosa.
The artistic achievements and personal torments of one of Latin America's greatest vocal artists and the conscience of her continent.
Rodrigo H. Vila's documentary...is a deeply loving portrait, with a leisurely pace that proves quite rewarding, as it encourages a rich immersion in the music and persona of its great subject.
