| The dark side of folk music
As a huge fan of Cornelis Vreeswijk I had great expectations for this movie. I have to say that I was really happy to see that my expectation were met. The music was brilliant (of course), the actors did a great job (more about this later) and the story was really good.

The music were partly by his (CS) own voice and partly other musicians who payed their homage to Cornelis. Of course a fan like me loves his own songs, but as a fan It is really easy to hate when other tries to cover the music. This wasn't the case, I think that all the covers was really good. The director of the movie payed his homage to Vreeswijk songs too, not with music but with scenery (the song "Don Quixote").

The former vocalist in the rock band Turbonegro, Hans Erik Dyvik Husby made a really great interpretation of Vreeswijk's life. Husby's portrait of Vreeswij's addiction to alcohol and drugs and his problems trying to manage it did'not give the viewer the feeling that this was an interpretation of the dark sides of fame, but rather something that Husby himself personally was aware of.

I give this one a 10/10 Although I personally would prefer the movie to be at least one hour longer...
