Excellent documentary about a little-known (but legendary) band.
22 July 2003 | by (Cologne, Germany) – See all my reviews

Wim Wenders has succeeded once again in making a film about a relatively obscure subject (this time the rock band BAP from Cologne in Wenders' native Germany) which is artistic, interesting and enlightening. The film is inspired by the group's album 'Tonfilm' (talking movie) which in turn was inspired by Edward Hopper's painting 'New York Movie'. Since band leader Wolfgang Niedecken is also a painter this is a fitting starting point for a fascinating and beautifully filmed journey through the band's history, taking in German postwar history and Niedecken's heroes including The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and Bob Dylan. The DVD has English subtitles throughout and German ones for the songs (sung in Cologne dialect). The music is fabulous and the film is much much more than your average 'Rockumentary'
