Diva ★★★★

Orgasmic sound design and music. Beautifully paced and wonderful cinematography in the second half. I loved the relationship between the fan and the diva, how their bond grew without any crazed theatrics (while the rest of the film is swirling with craziness), how gently he was there for her at all times and how she comes to find something that had been missing. The overall plotting of the film could have been a bit better and the tertiary characters better drawn, but this movie is a delight. The camera movements and sense of place, the unique quirks, the unspoken feelings of desire and need for connectivity; an intoxicating concoction.
