Beautiful documentary
7 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Quite a beautiful documentary, talks about the peak and fall of the figure of Vedettes in Mexico. This kind of artists of the night were women that made variety shows full of extravaganza, glitter, jewels and feathers, were the queens of the night. This documentary manages to humanize those women without making us feel pity about their situation, and have totally change my mind and the image of them, the one that i grew with. Maria Jose Cuvas (it's director) takes us in a very intimate journey into the current state of this five artists, and into their past. She addresses a distinctive figure of popular culture of the 60's and 80's and their fall. Lyn May, Olga Breeskin, Rossy Mendoza, La Princesa Yamal and Wanda Seux came back.
