Was she the German Judy Garland?
26 April 2000 | by aaron-71See all my reviews

This strange, interesting, but not terribly involving documentary traces the life of performer Zarah Leander and tries to examine why she has such a popular following along gay men. It is composed of film clips of the late Diva as will as interviews with people who worked with her, fans, an a female impersonator who badly imitates her in a cabaret nightly. I don't think this film was every released in this country but can only be seen in small film festivals in the U.S.
