User Reviews

a restricted view of four amazing personnalities
8 July 1999 | by ULVAEUSSee all my reviews

The documentary was very awaited but if the constuction is clever and the archives were very good, something is missing: the 4 members talking about their life, together in the same room. I must say that the choice of the songs is too limited and a lot of tv shows from all over the world, including the strangest interviews or funny register could have been used. The solo paths are almost totally absent although it would have more lightened the personalities of the fab 4. It's strange that it seems quite impossible to capture the quintessence of their souls which is more complex than everyone seems to think
