Tempest Storm" is a feature documentary that follows the controversial life story of America's greatest exotic dancer, who at 87 years old is preparing for her final and most important act: to repair her broken relationship with her daughter Patricia, who she walked away from fifty years ago.
Fame comes with a price, aging is never easy even if you were one of the most beautiful person in the world, and forgiveness is important
Loved the film as it is shot with Tempest in present day at the age of 86 and archival footage and old photographs weaving a story which was a sheer delight to watch going back to the 50's & 60's I also liked that the crew was so young and the subject was old enough to be their grandmother, their handling of the subject and the story as if one was nudging their aging grandmother to tell a tale of yesteryear with hidden secrets and unbeknownst regret and the subject recounting the story and reminiscing the past. The film is a reminder that fame comes with a price, that aging is never easy even if you were one of the most beautiful person in the world, and forgiveness is important. As Tempest herself puts it "we all have forgiveness, but you have to give the person a chance to forgive you". Now that is one classy lady! Loved the film!
