Storyline

Dutch rock singer, junkie and sex addict Herman Brood probably never outgrew his petty native Groningen bars scene, hadn't publican Koos van Dijk neglected his pub and wife to become Brood's devoted manager, even supplying drugs. They form a band, Brood and his Wild Romance, mainly more junk punks, but gradually build a reputation and after replacing the loser musicians launch a record, largely financed by Koos's conservative pa. Now Brood decides to aim for the top, New York's most exclusive club. Nearly Herman is lost to a stable relationship, but an OD saves his career. Koos gets them engaged by a US studio for a tour, but the Yanks plan to take over and Herman surprises everyone. Written by KGF Vissers

Five Years (the early years) of the Rock&Roll Years of the only Dutch Rock&Roll artist
5 November 2006 | by (West-Knollendam) – See all my reviews

The director catches one thing very good, the 'love' between the 2 main characters; Koos 'Coach' van Dijk & Herman Brood. They feel they are sort of intertwined; one needing the other to excel. This is exceptionally well-done; even in their darkest hour, the need to expose what is the energetic drive of the rock&roll machine is obvious to both of them. Not only being in it for the money, but just for the sake of it. Brood had talents; not being an extraordinary singer ( on the contrary: a mediocre type of voice), but gifted with words in catching the so-called zeitgeist (f.i. the I-era: I love you like I love myself...) and living the credo; you'd better do it from the heart...( don't you do it with the head). The movie highlights the early years 1974-1979- Herman's breakthrough years. Being just a ex-member (pianoplayer) of a famed Dutch bluesband with a lot of ambition becoming a star, to the success of being a star and not giving in to one's ideals. Dreaming of making a statement was their mission and both characters ( on one hand: the manager Koos & artist Herman and on the other hand director Jean van de Velde) can truly state: mission accomplished!
