Parker's genuine epic, based on the Tim Rice/Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, boasts huge crowd scenes (up to 40,000 extras, according to sources) and stars on top form. The film belongs very much to Madonna in a gift of a role, which follows the rags-to-riches life of Eva Peron from poverty to her place in the hearts of a nation. It's narrated in song by sardonic revolutionary Che Guevara (Banderas), but once the audience becomes accustomed to the style, the sheer scale of the movie should take effect.
