When great talent dies,

I saw her perform in 2007. Back then she was little more than a kind of caricature: "she's that woman with the distinctive voice who lives hard". This movie gives her her humanity back and shows the turmoil and misery behind her façade.

It goes to show that money/fame cannot buy you happiness, only what you truly love can, which should be yourself. Don't try to make others happy, because ...Read more
