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.
