William Wyler United States, 1968

Stefan Drees's rating of the film Funny Girl

Barbara Streisand's performance is stupendous, especially the different colors of her voice and the timing of her singing. Although the last part after the intermission gets weaker there are plenty of memorable sequences in the film. Two of my favorites are the roller-skate scene and the parody of Tchaikovskys "Swan Lake".
