      Audience Reviews for Violeta Went to Heaven

      • Jun 19, 2015
        "Violeta Went to Heaven" is an expressive biopic about the life and music of Violeta Parra(Francisca Gavilan), a beloved and renowned folk singer in her native Chile. Like many minority artists, the wealthy enjoyed listening to her music before banishing her to the kitchen. She would also have some of her artwork shown in the Louvre. Framed by a television interview that is more interested in her political leanings than anything else, especially if she is a Communist(she performed in then Communist Poland and was friends with Pablo Neruda), the movie is just as interested in the divisions in her life, starting with her being of mixed heritage.(At one point, Violeta says that she wishes she were entirely of Indian heritage.) After briefly exploring Violeta's origins in poverty, the movie jumps ahead to her tumultuous second marriage to Gilbert Favre(Thomas Durand).
