Storyline

Graffiti Bridge is the unofficial sequel to Purple Rain. In this movie, The Kid and Morris Day are still competitors and each runs a club of his own. They make a bet about who writes the best song and the Kid's club is on the line. But the Kid has become a brooding character who writes letters to his dead father and ponders spirituality. Under the Graffiti Bridge in the park, he meets Aura, an angel-like poet with whom he falls in love. Once again, Morris tries to steal his girl, and in the end, she dies in a tragic accident. But not in vain, she has given the Kid his edge back, and Morris gives in and lets him keep the club after hearing the moving ballad the Kid composed. Written by David Haglund

Trivia

Along with the film's soundtrack, the Time's fourth album "Pandemonium" serves as somewhat of a companion piece, as the film features three of the songs ("Jerk Out", "Blondie", and "Chocolate") which are not included on the film's soundtrack. "Pandemonium" was also the Time's long-awaited follow-up to "Ice Cream Castle", which included songs featured in Graffiti Bridge's unofficial prequel, Purple Rain. See more »

Purple Rain II; made me into a fan.
20 July 1999 | by (Indianapolis) – See all my reviews

My Prince-fan friend had to drag me to this film when it came out; I hated Prince, but was a fan of Elisa Fiorillo (the female vocalist for Love Machine), and hoped she'd be in the film. She wasn't, but the movie kind of got to me, and was instrumental in my getting over my phobic "hatred" of Prince. This movie, while a sequel to Purple Rain, is more a *fantasy* movie. It plays out like a dream, and if you have a hard time accepting a movie willing to suspend reality, then you're never really going to enjoy this film. The "romance" between Aura and the Kid develops oddly, just as one would expect anything with Prince to... the music is great, the dialogue throughout is very lyrical (almost like word jazz; the pacing, flow, and delivery is more important than the words uttered.), the sets and costumes are ethereal. Taken as a whole, and with an open mind, this movie works well.
