Storyline

Tailor to Hollywood's A-list, and a superstar in his own right, Ozwald Boateng is a dynamic force of energy, passion and colour. 1998: already celebrated as one of the most talented menswear designers in the world, Ozwald Boateng is about to go bankrupt and divorce his first wife. Through luck and circumstance director Varon Bonicos is able to switch on a camera. It continues to roll for the next twelve years. What emerges is a groundbreaking film that takes us on an exhilarating behind-the-scenes ride into the world of high fashion with one of one of the most influential menswear designers of his generation. Ending in 2010 when Boateng closes London Fashion Week with the biggest menswear show in history, Bonicos is able to get behind the headlines and chart Boateng's singular dream to succeed. Instinctive, flawed and generous, A Man's Story goes to the very heart of what Boateng has spent an entire career trying to distil: "what it is to be a man." Written by Trinity Filmed Entertainment

Must see!
9 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom, London) – See all my reviews

It is very interesting and exciting work that watches like a scripted movie, yet it is a documentary that shows insides of the industry and the life of "a man" on the example of talented British designer, Ozwald Boateng. What make it different from the other documentaries? Is that we are able to witness the ups and downs in life of Ozwald Boateng for the period of 12 years(Wow! Long time), which shows the dynamic of personal and professional journey through that period of time! Well done to director, Varon Bonicos, who was able to capture the significant moments to create this masterpiece! Must See for everyone, especially men, as it may help to look at the bigger picture of life, business, love and evaluate and prioritise things in life.
