positively surprised
31 December 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Just watched the movie and felt positively surprised afterwards although I am no particular connoisseur of his music. Falco is being portrayed as an ingenious but also emotionally unstable artist who has problems finding the right approach towards his own feelings, but also

  • and even more - towards others'. His early life seems to be like a


series of clichés: he suffered from the loss of two siblings (which were born dead), his father left family early, he was a very gifted kid but dropped school anyway, started to consume drugs & alcohol etc. etc. Well yes, we have seen that in "Ray" or "Walk the line" in a similar way already, so why watch this movie too? I'd say it is the plausible atmosphere, the good acting & setting and a lack of over-exaggerated tragedy. The movie shows no 'decisive' situation which changes all his life at once. It is, although commercial successes happen of course, rather a long way down in his battle between self-pity and hubris, stimulated by drugs, alcohol and excessive lifestyle which leads to Falco's fatal car accident, may it have been suicide or not. So, no good ending as in the two other musician portraits I've mentioned earlier above; instead, there is a fatal addition of "Leaving Las Vegas" in it.
