A perfect biopic of a great band
16 August 2013 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed every minute of this movie.

It's a story about a band, its members, their ups and downs and their struggle for success. It has a very positive vibe. Interviews are mixed with on-stage performance clips therefore it's filled with good music.

Dave Grohl also tell us about band's Nirvana heritage or burden as you like.

I especially like scenes from a pool party at the end, when they hanged with their families while recording "Wasting Light". It's so funny and emotional at the same time. After all Foo Fighters are family guys. James Moll did a great job.

"Back and Forth" is a must see for every true fan of Foo Fighters.
