| Original sex and drugs-story about Austrian mega star
This Austrian autobiographic film about Austrian superstar Falco and his life from young boy to superstardom to tragic death, all bathed in Falcos hits from "Der Kommisar" to "Jeannie".

The film shock opens with Grace Jones telling about the horror in what happened when he tragically died. Just after we go back to his childhood years when he played organ in the church, and becoming a school dropout dreaming of being a new Elvis.

The film is different and interesting all the way, and manages to capture a life often in chaos. Falco is fabulously portrayed here, by Manuel Rubey as an ingenious but also very insecure and sometimes quite opposite, emotionally and artistic unstable artist.

The film manages to tell the story of sex,drugs and rock'n'roll in an original way, steering outside the clichés that makes a film like this boring. The telling rhythm which is very different, and baffles you a bit. The story is still mostly chronologically told, but gives short glimpses to the end so you realize the end is nearer than you would think during the whole film.

The film is scattered with his hit songs, adding a lot of 80'ies nostalgia, which for me adds to the pleasure. Recommended watch.
