Argentina offers its own image of Evita - 1997 Academy Awards/Argentine Selection - She was neither a saint nor a devil. - No woman, before or since, has possessed as much magnetism and influence as Eva "Evita" Peron. During the 1950s, she was the most powerful woman in the Americas - capturing the heart and soul of the poor, whose causes she championed until her tragic death at age 33. EVA PERON beautifully chronicles Evita's stormy, passionate life, which brought so much hope to Argentina in an age of political power struggles, bloody coups, military oppression, and economic depression.

parallel in her story and the stories acted out in third world countries. Pity she died so young. The film is very effective. Esther Goris's acting is
Unlike Webber's version, the Director shows Evita in several political situations, such as meeting a woman from the Charity Association, and talking to the railroad workers when they begin a strike. Also unlike Webber's version, the director in this one concentrated solely on Eva's vice presidency which Webber short-changed during the filming of his Evita.
Ester Goris, looks impressively like the real Evita and also has the ability to show emotions very well. For example, when Peron ignores Evita going up for the vice presidency she launchs into a tirade about how she has been discriminated against all her life, and when Eva finds out about her cancer Ester calmly sits down in front of a mirror before striking it four times with her fist.
I highly recommend this movie as a resource to all Evita fans who have a project or are just curious about the life and death of Eva Peron.
