fair documentary - Bee Gees fans will love it
7 August 2008 | by (Herzlya, Israel) – See all my reviews

Let me say from the beginning that I am a fan of the Bee Gees as composers but not of their musical style. This documentary was made at the best possible moment from the perspective of their career - they were after 40 years of singing together and 30 years of fame, but still in full creative power. This allowed them to be able to tell a full story of life and music, and also to play many of their classic or newer (at that time) songs - a dream combination for these who love them. A few years later Maurice Gibb passed away, and the surviving brothers decided to stop using the name of the band without him.

Yet the film is suffering of too much respect, it looks too much like having been written and edited with their blessing, it too much resembles an official biography. It is actually an official form of art, a good one in its genre, but this is a genre which hardly results in masterpieces. Too much respect and love sometimes suffocate art.
