Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga at the Venice…

 In A Star Is Born, the third remake of the famous 1937 film directed here by Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga is Ally, the girl next door. And if Ally has come to life, and if it seems so true when we see her on the screen as the protagonist of the most tragic of fairy tales, the merit is all of her superlative interpreter.

Let’s not go around: Lady Gaga is the beating heart of A Star Is Born. Already queen of modern pop, Gaga also proves to be an excellent actress when she manages more than credibly to quit the role of the eccentric innovator who dresses since 2008: Lady Gaga is no longer in the film’s 135-minute duration, but it’s only Ally. Ally fragile, with eyes full of hope and an incredible voice, warm, crazy. It is not only Jackson Maine who falls madly in love with her, but also with the audience: Ally is at the same time us and what we would like to be. Anyone who has prejudices about his ability to change, anyone who sees in Lady Gaga only form at the expense of substance, will change his mind and repent looking at this film: there are few music interpreters able to be chameleonic like her, they are even less than those, transported in the world of cinema, they manage to amaze once again, showing a new side of themselves and infusing them into their own characters – previously interpreted by sacred monsters like Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand.
