Told through performances, TV interviews, home movies, family photographs, private letters and unpublished memoirs-nearly all of which have never been shown to the public-the film reveals the essence of an extraordinary woman who rose from humble beginnings in New York City to become a glamorous international superstar and one of the greatest artists of all time.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average Everyone from the men who complained about Callas' behavior to her adoring public waiting for hours outside Lincoln Center is included in her story, but ultimately, they never overshadow the subject's voice in the narrative. This time, it's her turn to speak for herself.
Slant MagazineFull Review Above Average ...a loving, albeit meandering, tribute to Maria Callas... Often haphazardly bouncing between snippets of various home movies and paparazzi footage, Volf heavily favors quantity over quality in exploring Callas's personal life.
The GuardianFull Review Good ...a dazzling documentary...that draws from letters, unpublished memoirs, home movies, family photos, performances, journals and TV interviews that allow Callas to speak — and sing — for herself. No narrator, no talking heads feeding you insights, just the lady letting it rip on stage and off.
