Editors’ Notes

A woman of modest origins who used her talent and relentless ambition to reinvent herself as revered national figure and pop cultural icon, Argentina’s Eva Peron seems the woman Madonna was born to play. Director Alan Parker’s belated 1996 film adaptation of the Webber/Rice ‘80s stage triumph yields a strong, remarkably mature performance from Madonna. This 19-track collection is quite literally the film’s soundtrack, an elaborately executed, neo-operatic recording where Madonna challenged herself by infusing her vocal performances with a sense of dramatic accomplishment that can’t be denied. (“Don’t Cry for Me Argentina is, of course, the album’s monster hit.) Yet despite the inclusion of “You Must Love Me,” a strong new ballad written especially to augment the film, there remains a nagging sense that overall it’s a performance preserved like a butterfly under glass. Perhaps that’s due to the absence of Parker’s riveting visuals, or simply because it often seems like a project a decade removed from its theatrical inspiration.

Customer Reviews

Wow, Just Beautiful.

I don't know if it is the story, the singing, or the movie it's self, but something about this story that touches my heart in a way I never thought possible. It is a beautiful story beautifuly made into a movie and then in to a lovley soundtrack. It is a must have for any music library. 10 stars!!

Great soundtrack!

This is a great soundtrack. I actually prefer this to the London Cast's recording. Antonio Banderas is probably my favorite voice in the music. However I wish they would put Andrew Loyd Webber as the artist, not Madonna because she didn't write the songs and she's not even the only singer.

Great Songs, but such a SAD movie!

I knew that Eva Peron died, but I didn't know it was at such a young age of a horrible disease. Madonna was great in the movie, this is pretty much the only movie that she has acted in that is worth seeing mainly because all the rest of her films have all been labeled as flops. The songs are very touching and many of them make your heart sink. Especially the songs "You Must Love Me", "Another Suitcase in Another Hall", "Waltz for Eva and Che", "Eva's Final Broadcast", and "Lament". They are very sad. The movie itself was very sad. The woman led a remarkable life. Madonna really was great in the role. Can anyone imagine that several other actresses were against her playing the part including Meryl Streep(who was actually up for the role, but the producers later felt she was way too old), Madonna does a great job and she sings her heart out. Antonio Banderas is great in the film as well. Its a shame that Madonna wasn't even nominated for an oscar, if she was she would have won! So this is a classic film by Madonna, its probably her only good movie, ever since a series of flops. She has also quit acting, and she acts so well that she blended in all the talent that she has, and all the talent that she'll ever have. She was also pregnant when she did the film.

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

After stars reach a certain point, it's easy to forget what they became famous for and concentrate solely on their personas. Madonna is such a star. She rocketed to stardom so quickly in 1984 that it obscured most of her musical virtues. Appreciating her music became even more difficult as the decade wore on, as discussing her lifestyle became more common. However, one of Madonna's greatest achievements is how she has manipulated the media and the public with...
