Nice, but could have been much better
11 July 2000 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

As a big fan of this Artist I was very interested what this documentation will tell me about her. I didn't tell much. If you don't know anything about her before you see this film, you will get no real info at all about her and a distorted impression about her. The interviews are nice, but are missing background info. I only detested James Young who calls her a "failure". Much time is wasted which odd images which texts from her songs over them. Why is the music video for "Evening of light" or "I'm not saying" not played in full length? For a real fan this would be very interesting. This docu also has no real chronological order, but just jumbles around with no connection. Important facts (especially about her death, her last concert, her last movie, her music, her albums) aren't told. Important people don't show up in this movie, like Antoine Giacomoni. Why is Nicos album "Drama of Exile" totally ignored in this Docu. What about her alleged Mafia connections? etc etc etc. Sure, the cuts from interviews with her are very interesting, but this docu is still very sloppy.
