bach lennon and epstein
28 August 2002 | by (belgium) – See all my reviews

I saw this one in 1994 and I was under the impression. Contrary to one of the other comments, I found Ian Hart's impersonation of Lennon strong: witty, hurting and sensitive at times. The interaction between Epstein and Lennon in a strange pre-Beatlemania atmosphere was fascinating: BEA-aircompany, Lennon going to watch some Gaudis in Barcelona (did he really know Gaudi at that time ?), Lennon picking up a girl (stewardess on the flight). It seems far from the peace loving prophet a few years later. And still, I think, much closer to the "real" John Lennon. The beautiful Bach-score (Goldberg variations by Glenn Gould) offers an impressing undertone to this portrait, which looks like a forebode of the dramatic short lives of both protagonists.
