Nada, a beautiful French journalist on assignment in New York, records the life and work of an up and coming punk rock star, Billy. Soon she enters into a volatile relationship with him and must decide whether to continue with it, or return to her lover, a fellow journalist trying to track down the elusive Andy Warhol.
Did You Know?
When Richard Hell
was asked to star in this film, he did some research on the director Ulli Lommel
and screened Tenderness of the Wolves
(1973) which he felt was a brilliant film and so jumped at the chance to work with the genius behind the film. Then as the shoot for Blank Generation went on and it was becoming an increasingly miserable mess, Richard started to realize that maybe he had been wrong about Lommel. He checked Tenderness of the Wolves again and it became clear why that film was a success, it wasn't because of Lommel, it was because of Kurt Raab
and Rainer Werner Fassbinder
