Cinema Paco 2: 4.25 in. / 5, sound 3/5. Great film with magnificent actors, dialogues and interpretations

The movie is pretty much a satire about Hollywood world but is also about the rise and fall of a star. Times change, so movies change too. And the ones that in one day are the better the prettiest and the most famous in the other day could be forgotten.
The screenplay is very well written and the acting by everyone was very good. But Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond steals the show! She portrays the forgotten star from silent films, all she wants is to be famous again and that desire drove her to madness. We can really believe in her madness and she is pretty scary! A great performance from her.
Great classics like this will never get old. Need to see more from Billy Wilder.
