Wonderfully funny documentary on failed attempt to film a show by Andre Heller, ´Body & Soul`.
12 June 2002 | by (London, UK/ Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

In 1988 Nick Broomfield was asked by a Tele Munich, a German production company, to document the making of a musical show by Andre Heller, ´Body & Soul`, an all-black revival of the music, dance and songs of the thirties and forties. Broomfield agreed under certain conditions (concerning money and schedule) but when he arrived in New York to start filming everything had changed: the budget had been cut down, the time frame changed, and the producers were not willing to keep any of their promises. But instead of walking out of the job Broomfield stayed on and began making a film about his desperate attempts to produce the documentary: he filmed telephone conversations, meetings and verbal fights with his producers, each of his failed attempt to get in touch with the money people, and sometimes he even followed the progress of the show. He did that with a truly sardonic and unforgiving eye - and produced one of the funniest and most revealing films I`ve ever seen about showbiz. If you always wanted to know if all that gossip about showbiz is true or if Bob Fosse was a pathetic liar, then you should see that movie: a delight!
