Well-made if unremarkable documentary
2 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

The ennui of touring the world has never been so painstakingly detailed. We get interesting insights into the music and interrelational politics of the young singing group but it goes on long after it has ceased entertaining its audience. Nevertheless, this representative time capsule is worth a glance.
