Born in Egypt into an Italian family, Dalida (real name Iolanda Gigliotti) was one of France’s most famous singers of the late 1950s to the 1980s, and became a legend in the disco boom. The stylish biopic follows Dalida’s tragic private life and her singing career which also saw her sell 170 million records worldwide. DALIDA is magnificently melodramatic,  brims with stunning musical moments and nears perfection with its replicated costuming.
