From the rain of Japan, through threats of arrest for 'public indecency' in Canada, and a birthday tribute to her father in Detroit, this documentary follows Madonna on her 1990 'Blond Ambition' concert tour. Filmed in black and white, with the concert pieces in glittering MTV color, it is an intimate look at the work of the music performer, from a prayer circle with the dancers before each performance to bed games with the dance troupe afterwards.

and Warren Beatty
were no longer an item by the time this premiered. Some of the phone conversations Madonna recorded for inclusion in the film had Beatty saying 'I love you' but she had to edit them from the final cut when he threatened legal action. See more
Supposedly the live footage is filmed in the United States (she even greets the audience by saying 'Alright America do you believe in love' but they zoom out so far that you can't see her lips moving). In the United States Madonna was wearing the ponytail. In all the live footage she has curled hair. This means the show was actually filmed in Europe (according to the credits, it was in Paris). There are several references to the live footage being filmed in America, especially Like a Virgin in Toronto and Keep it Together (the technical problems) in Los Angeles, even though that footage was also filmed in Paris.

I wouldn't live in Chicago cause it's too conservative, aside for the fact that Oprah Winfrey lives there.
All through the end credits Madonna and her dancers' voices are heard getting ready for bed and after the credits are done Madonna is shown saying, "I'm just gonna push this button and the camera's gonna go off now. Ok?" See more
