As a 51 year-old man, I am certainly NOT the target audience of this documentary about Daft Punk. I do not hang out in clubs nor am I especially hip. On the other hand, I have long admired these two French musicians (Guy-Manuel and Thomas) because of their showmanship and marketing genius. Instead of seeking fame in the traditional way, the duo have remained anonymous--donning modified motorcycle helmets and pretending to be robots in all public appearances. This is the ultimate commitment to electronic music and it's made them legendary...as well as Grammy winners.
What makes this a very interesting film is that you only catch small glimpses of the guys' faces...and then, only very early in their careers. They also do not participate in making the film and aren't interviewed...mostly because robots don't do interviews and they are THAT committed to their personas! Instead, you hear from folks who have worked with them and admirers. It all paints a portrait of two marketing geniuses who also make exceptional music...and is intriguing and well made throughout.
