Backbeat film, 1993


Recommended Posts

Saw a great movie on cable tonight -- made in 1993. It's about two art student pals, Stu and John, who get three other Liverpool lads to join them in a contract to play rock and roll in a Hamburg dive in 1960. It starts off with great casting choices, cinematography, direction, lively dialog, and interaction with German girls.


The second half slows the pace with a story about Stu, Astrid, and Klaus, but that's OK. I guess a lot of it was true.


Forty years ago I heard a song on the radio -- I Want to Hold Your Hand -- in German. Thanks to the Internet, I finally got to hear it again. Ja, das ist goodt.
