One of the best music films ever made
22 May 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

"Comeback" starring the world's greatest singer, Eric Burdon. It took me a long time to see this movie. Finally I got it. I saw some music clips on Youtube from this clip and read how many songs this movie features and I thought it's impossible to get all these songs in 100 minutes. In fact, they put more songs in it than I expected. Burdon is singing throughout the story, on stage and there is many soundtrack anyway.

The acting is very natural and the story is about music business, wishes for freedom, sex, drugs and much more. Burdon plays Rocco and goes through the hell in this movie, like he did in his musical career.

The story and the actors have many faces, it's an art film with touches of a mainstream motion picture.

The most important songs are "Sweet Blood Call", "Who Gives A F**k", "The Road", "It Hurts Me Too", "Crawling King Snake", "Bird On The Beach" ( a song about freedom etc.), "You Can't Kill My Spirit". Other songs included are "House of the Rising Sun", "Take it Easy", Streetwalker" and many, many more.

Other well-known actors are Julie Carmen, Michael Cavanaugh and Dan van Husen.

"When you're dead, you're great". It's a real great and hard to get movie, buy it if you have the chance to.....
