Storyline

A little over a year ago, nine terrorists drove into Paris with guns, grenades, and suicide belts. They were there to perpetrate a coordinated, calculated mass murder on behalf of ISIL and, more symbolically, to launch an assault on culture itself, by turning the city's houses of mirth - soccer stadiums, cafés, restaurants, and of course, the Bataclan concert hall - into monuments to death and fear. They wanted to spill blood, to shut the West up. Written by Watch_Movies

This really knocked me out
3 December 2017 | by jon_crookeSee all my reviews

I was really stunned by this, how it turns a tragedy into a redemptive triumph. I knew very little about the band prior to the events in Paris, but the way this brings you into their world and underlines how this horrible night dove-tailed into their story is deeply moving. It shouldn't matter whether or not you agree with Jessie Hughes' views on gun control. This is peripheral detail and beside the point. I would be highly disappointed with anyone who comes away from this movie without an appreciation for the humanity of the man; going through something so unbelievably atrocious such as this, but refusing to let it take away MUSIC - one of the few truly positive and uniting things we have in this ever more divided world.
