Trivia

Some songs in this movie were sang by Roy Orbison. He was Roy Black's idol, therefore he used his first name in his pseudonym. The 'Black' is cause of his black hair and his nickname in school 'Blacky'. See more »

Goofs

During the filming scene of "Wenn du bei mir bist" the character Tamani is talking German. However in the original movie the actress Zienia Merton, who played the character, talked English the whole time and was synchronized by Marion Hartmann. It is clearly visible. See more »

Very well done biopic
11 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

I was actually very much surprised to see as decent a film like that on the RTL channel back in '97 or '96 - but only until I found out who had directed the film. Keglevic has done a very good job with Rudolf Kowalski (in a top role as the latter-day agent of Roy Black) and Christoph Waltz who convincingly portrayed the insecure rock-star made Schlagersänger. The film focuses on the years between his discovery and his decline, ending just before he is to comeback as an actor.
