‘A STAR IS BORN’
A rising movie star in his film debut behind the cameras, an acclaimed pop star in her first film major role, and a memorable classic recovered in its fourth version to date. What can be said about this 'A STAR IS BORN' “reimagining” that previous versions hasn’t done before, led by Bradley Cooper ('AMERICAN SNIPER') and Lady Gaga ('AMERICAN HORROR HISTORY')? Now that countless projects recovered from the memory chest seem to define the recent film period, for once, THIS is a remake worthy of all attention. A love story in many senses conventional, with standards and predictable, but finally achieved due to three key factors: its protagonist pair, the careful production and direction, and its soundtrack - the latter of course.
Starting with Cooper/Gaga, the strength of their characters and the good relationship between them makes the action flow remarkably, giving very credible results and very close to sensations and feelings in their attempt to connect with the audience, and surely will in most cases. Cooper and Gaga already have charisma in their presence and profession, which makes this plot gratifying.
In his first work as director, Cooper convinces with a careful production design, traditional- feeling in many aspects, at the same time detailed with essential elements on each sequence and moment shown.
Certainly, the soundtrack produced and supervised by Gaga and Lukas Nelson (son of veteran country musician Willie Nelson) offers a whole new musical tracklist that coherently combines rock, country and pop music, news songs that lead the narrative without reaching the film music genre, but leaves that really good impression and impossible to be ignored by anyone. ‘A STAR IS BORN’ could have end in the forgettable and unnecessary remakes list, but but proofs that some are the exception.
