Amália - O Filme
(Portugal, 2008, 122 minutes)
The life of Portuguese star singer Amália Rodrigues, whose successful international career was marred by a series of romantic mishaps. Dull, fanciful biopic that resolves itself in a series of unconnected episodes and never rises above the level of a perfunctory TV movie of the week.
