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 movie has been memorable for featuring a scene where a reporter calls Sting by his birth name Gordon from which he replies: "My children call me Sting, my mother calls me Sting, who is this Gordon character?". See more »
There are numerous mismatches between the soundtrack music and the performances on stage and in rehearsal, including cymbal crashes and drum fills that are heard and not seen, and vice versa. See more »
This is not a revealing doco. It's a celebration of the artist, Sting. On this tour he manages to round up some fine Jazz musicians and slot them right into his creative process. A few insightful moments are delivered but in the end it has nothing new to offer but a free peak into the workings of another creative mind in progress.
