Storyline

In 1996, the artist Leila K was nominated for the best album award, for her album "Manic Panic", in the Swedish Grammis Gallan. She ultimately lost the award to Dilba, and didn't take it very well. The day after, the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet published a story about Leila K peeing on the floor at the award ceremony. Leila K filed a lawsuit against them, and was offered a chance to redeem herself. The documentary also covers how Leila K built her career and stardom, from the beginning with Rob'n'Raz and their world wide mega hit "Got To Get" in 1989, up to her second album of her solo career.

Brilliant documentary, awe-inspiring main character
25 October 2011 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is without a doubt one of my favourite music documentaries ever. Clocking in just under an hour, it's a fantastic ride through the life of one of the most successful euro-disco artists in the 1990s. Today her life is completely different, but I think you can plainly see her demons chasing her throughout the documentary. Leila K was exciting: watching this documentary one realises how she was actually 15-20 years before Lady Gaga in a variety of ways and that she never gave a toss what anybody thought. Hounded by the media, by the tabloids, by insipid journalists, by everybody who wanted her to fail I just wish she'd have pulled through. She possessed sheer genius. Maybe one day, she will prevail.
