A great documentary about 'Van Damage'
antoniomt_2000 from United Kingdom
28 May 2006
At nearly an hour long this documentary takes us Dans La Peau De
Jean-Claude Van Damme (under the skin of...). We see him talking with
his agents, film industry folk and some other stars, we also get to
hear what his wife thinks of dedicated film profession and why he is
such a good family man. He also tells us about how he worked with Chuck
Norris, met Jackie Chan in HK for five minutes (while Van Damme was
still unknown) and how hard it was to break into the film industry. He
even admits he has done some very bad movies in his time, but states
there are some very good ones as well.
This was only shown on french TV back in 2003 and has french language
only (no English subtitles). I managed to obtain a copy (without
knowing francais, and it was very hard to follow). About two months
later I managed to obtain a copy which did have English subtitles (some
fan had translated the language) and the picture quality was grade A
(salvation at last...thank you).
A truly excellent documentary indeed.
