Beautiful and Dark, just like Nico.
23 February 2019 | by badsceneSee all my reviews

A haunting emotional bio pic that showcases the woman behind the haunting voice that has resonated with so many disaffected youths since the 1960's.

This film portrays the last two years in the life of Nico, a broken drug addled woman, who at this point is basically doggy paddling in a nihilistic swamp of a lifefull of regrets and disappointments.

The film revolves around Nico's final tour across europe with a new band. I'm a big fan of Nico's music, and thought this was extremely well done, and I'm extremely critical of bio pics. Trine Dyrholm is fantastic in the role. Bravo!
