Evita Barbara (49): Beautifully acted, lovely set, lovely tunes - only, the schmaltzy singing of the latter irritated me.
Andreas Lupp (20): Arguably the most beautiful and breathtaking Disney film ever made. It is flawless in its storytelling and has a classic soundtrack that is in the popular conscience. It would be a shame for anybody to miss this film.
