Storyline

Hannes Rossacher's major documentary "Rammstein in Amerika" is a great journey. It begins in summer 1988 on the Ostseestrand in East Germany and accompanies the band on their long, sometimes painful, but finally successful conquest of the American continents up until 2001. It continues with their farewell to the US after the events of September 11th and ends in front of thousands of cheering Americans in Madison Square Garden. For the documentary, Rammstein provided extensive, previously unreleased footage and photos from the band archive. In numerous interviews from various periods in the band's history, the band members speak about their experiences across the Atlantic. Old and new friends and acquaintances, as well as many American colleagues, pay tribute to the band and recount anecdotes. Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Moby, CJ Ramone, Steven Tyler (Aerosmith), Iggy Pop, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley from KISS, Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit), Marilyn Manson, Melissa Auf der Maur, ... Written by Rammstein

great documentary about the German band Rammstein and how they made their way to the USA which usually isn't easy when you sing in German. also it gives a good review about the history of the band before they were famous. the documentary finally shows that this band is not some nazi-band which they were told to be in the late 90ies because of the way they pronounce the words. this documentary shows how tough it can be to be a successful band. it's not all easy and fun. what I liked a lot about this documentary is that it shows the impact of 9/11 and a little bit how Europeans look at it. it's not much politics but just enough. to Europeans it also shows how crazy the laws in the united states can be.
