Don't Try to Cross A Diva
John F. Rooney | 11/15/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In "Casi Divas" ("Almost Divas" "Road to Fame") (2009) Eva is a real diva, a star, whom her producer/lover, Alejandro, wants to replace with a younger woman. Over Eva's dead body! Hundreds of young women in this Mexican, Spanish-language film vie in a contest to be the star of the producer's next blockbuster.
Eva does everything including devious things to blackmail Alejandro into keeping her as his leading diva and his lover. She's a force to be reckoned with.
The movie concentrates on four young women, different types from different backgrounds. One comes from an upper class family, one from a gaggle of misfits, one Francisca (Maya Zapata) from a poor family in Oaxaca with Indian roots. The fourth is a factory worker from Juarez. The rivalry among the girls becomes fierce. A national TV show is used to run the contest, and viewers vote for their choices.
A sub-plot concerns a serial killer who is stalking and killing young women. This only seems to hit home at the end of the film.
The movie at times seems like a soap opera, has some social commentary, and has a real surprise. When the contest is going on, you may feel as if you have traveled this road before.
