He pauses at an opera recital to secretly record a performance by an American soprano named Cynthia Hawkins (Wilhelmenia Wiggins Fernandez).Obtaining the only known recording of Hawkins, he is seen making the recording by two Taiwanese bootleggers, who want to steal it from him.Incorporating further complex plot twists (including an incriminating tape implicating the Chief of police in a murder), what follows is a thrilling and audacious chase movie set in shadowy industrial spaces and the Paris Metro.Diva is a thriller that is more about how it looks than what happens in it. Here is an exhilarating film made for no better purpose than to surprise and fascinate. -
