Former musician Frankie Wilde is a legend within the Ibiza club scene for being the most inspired DJ around. On top of that, he has a beautiful model wife named Sonja Slowinski, although many within his social circle don't see her as being a good influence on him. But Frankie has disappeared from the Ibiza club scene now for a year, with most only speculating that his life has degenerated into squalor based on his excessive lifestyle in Ibiza. In reality, Frankie's current disappearance and his ultimate fate is due in part to his excessive substance abuse, especially of cocaine, but also partly due to exposure to continual loud music and a physical disorder: he went completely deaf, with no possibility of getting his hearing back. As he went from partial hearing to total deafness, Frankie believed he could still eke out a living as a DJ without telling many of his descent into total deafness. As Frankie went through a self-imposed isolation to deal with his deafness in his own unique ... Written by
When Frankie is having the extensive hearing tests, the instrument that the doctor uses has markings that go up to 11. This is a reference to Nigel Tufnel's Amp in "This Is Spinal Tap" See more »
When Frankie goes to see his agent, in the scene where his agent tells him his last set sounded like crap, you can see the boom mic and operator in Frankie's glasses after being told he's going deaf. See more »

Crazy, Fascinating, Original, Drama, Humor, Fun and Good Dance Music!
Paul Kaye is the perfect type for this DJ-character in the Ibiza music & party scene. I'll keep it briefly. The film got lot's of aspects as my summary explains. A genius in his own right.
We saw the movie at the International Film Festival in Rotterdam (the Netherlands). It was a surprise movie at the last evening of this Festival. It really surprised us. Nighty minutes after the movie ended we were still laughing and talking about this unique movie. Something to remember: the alternative 'scarface' scene. It's the brain of Michael Dowse that we have to thank for such a film
Go see the movie and have fun! Even if you don't like house music.
