See Ricky Martin as you have never seen him before: up close and personal. Travel with him on his sold-out European concert tour. Feel like you're a part of the exuberant crowds that dance and sway to his mesmerizing rhythms and gyrations as he performs his songs in different venues across Europe. Swoon to his sultry songs and sensual charisma in this exhilarating production featuring eight great performances and a bonus video clip. A must-have collector's video! Songs: No Puedo Mas, Bombom De Azucar, Nada Es Imposible, A Medio Vivir, Susana, Dime Que Quieres, Maria, Te Extrano 2. 70 minutes.
He shakes his bon bon! He lives la vida loca! He probably even bangs, too! But if you're expecting to see or hear Ricky Martin singing the songs by those names, you're going to be disappointed. That's because Europa chronicles the Martin phenomenon as it was in 1997, when his audience was still largely Spanish-speaking and before he recorded his huge crossover hits. And since the bulk of this 70-minute concert-cum-documentary was filmed in Spain (other countries such as Germany, Italy, and France are visited, but most of the actual performances appear to be in front of Spanish audiences), the Puerto Rico-born singer sings entirely in his native language. That doesn't do much to improve the quality of the songs, which are standard-issue pop; only Susana, with its gentle reggae vibe, and the international hit Maria, with its catchy Un Dos Tres! chant, do much to distinguish themselves. And the truth is that Martin isn't much of a singer in any language. But he's a generous, enthusiastic performer who genuinely seems to love being on stage and to appreciate the adulation and various perks that come with being a pop star. --Sam Graham
The DVD is loaded with extras: along with the Te Extrano video, which is part of the main program, you'll find a gushing text biography (updated to 2001) that takes up an amazing 17 screens; a complete discography; about four minutes of bonus concert outtakes set to La Bamba; and a photo gallery. You can also listen to the voice-over narration in English or Spanish (subtitles are provided for interviews conducted in Spanish). --Sam Graham
