A documentary about the making of the first Sting album. Not only is some time spent in the studio (much of was recorded in an interesting mansion), but there is also some interesting information about what was going on in the lives of the members of his band during that time, including Sting's child being born.Written by
The name Sting rhymed with the first word of the film's Bring on the Night (1985) title. As such, the artist's name above-the-title top billing in movie posters rhymed with the start of this picture's title. See more »
During the last song, "Message in a Bottle", Sting plays a cream Fender Telecaster. For the last verse through the end of the song, he is playing a black Fender Stratocaster. When he says, "Goodnight," and walks off stage, he is seen taking off the cream Telecaster. The song is clearly pieced together from separate performances. See more »
This film is a rare treat, a peek into the professional and personal life of one of the greatest musicians this world has ever seen. This film is about the solo venture of Sting after separating from The Police, into what became his first(if I'm not mistaken) solo album -'The Dream of the Blue Turtles'. I've been an avid fan of Sting's music especially since I heard his album 'The Soul Cages'. What I like about his music is the timeless and universal quality of his lyrics, the uniqueness of each and every song and at the same time a certain underlying uniformity of thought and tone. Listening to his music is like meditation...it's cathartic. I don't think there is any one aspect of human nature and human life he hasn't touched upon in his music. For this reason watching this film was really quite incredible. Paris, where Sting performed and rehearsed lends its own charm and personality to the film. There are funny moments as when these bunch of tourists are led by a tourist guide into the room of the chateau in which Sting and his band are rehearsing and the guide is telling them about the portraits hung on the walls! The sequence of the birth of Sting's son in the hospital to the tune of 'Russians' is the emotional high point of the film. The interview with Sting gives an insight into the mind of this complex man and musician. Altogether, an Experience!!
