Phoenix Blue is one of the most successful recording artists in world music. But no one knows who he is... He has never performed live. Never appeared on film or TV. Never spoken to the press. No photo has ever been printed of him yet his records continue to sell in their millions. So why is he hiding and where? Rachel Delaney, a young London journalist, is determined to find out and she is not one to give up. A fragile lead draws her into the world of Internet cyber-hacking and the dangerous sport of freediving. In her pursuit of the ultimate story she loses almost everything but her belief pays off when she reaches the Caribbean and discovers a complex young man, Rick Earnhardt, living on a super yacht under the control of a ruthless woman Persha Lovich. Events spiral dangerously out of control as Rachel slowly unravels the dark secret behind Phoenix Blue... Written by Anonymous

Great entertainment, fabulous music, wonderful locations, great young actors
2 June 2004 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Just seen this movie and it came as a very pleasant surprise. A highly original story that held me through to the end, about a bestselling recording artist who the world has never seen - no live performances, no TV appearances, no photos - just the music. Sounds far-fetched, but it pretty much works, principally because the music is so good and the director, Tony Maylam, largely pulls it off. No star names (unless you call Amanda Donohoe a star name, which I don't!), but the three young leads had something. Never seen them before. James Murray, as the singer ... where did he come from? Emily Hamilton the hot young Brit journo tracking down the singer ... and the most impressive, a computer nerd, Jason Hughes, who actually made me laugh. Some nifty locations to, and a backstory involving freediving (touch of "Le Grand Bleu" - remember that!), shot on some dreamy location with acres of translucent blue ocean. But what made the film really standout was the music. Some seriously good tracks. Been hunting down where I can buy the CD, but doesn't seem to be available - ANYWHERE. This is one movie I've seen recently which actually warranted being seen in the cinema on a large screen. Pity, it deserved its shot.
