CINEMA : Callas Forever

A fictional story of Opera diva, Maria Callas's making fake comeback with her friend (a powerful promoter old gay guy) in her last days. Neither artsy nor first class movie. Recommendation for rather home video watch. Personally, it's wonderful to watch jobs of those first-class creative professionals who dedicated their entire life for their professionalism. Say Maria Callas, how she is herself (not selfish), yet charming.

Near the end of the film, Maria Callas says she wanted Callas( her stage-name) but she should have wanted to be a woman... It sounded ironical (after watching her professionalism) to me who have good success neither in her professional nor her private life so far…
