Editorial Reviews

The true story of 80's pop star Falco is revealed in this lush and audacious film, chronicling his meteoric rise from child prodigy to overnight music sensation. After worldwide success from hits like Rock Me Amadeus and Vienna Calling, Falco tried to escape industry pressure by fleeing into a world of sex and drugs, bringing about his downfall. Featuring extraordinary recreations of the iconic music videos and an appearance by rock goddess Grace Jones, FALCO captures the period of musical and stylistic excess of the 80's with verve and humanity.

I really didn't know what to expect. Some cheesy made for TV movie with bad acting? Not at all. This is more like a quality Indie gem that does an excellent job of telling the life story of Falco. Its a story, as one might have guessed, of sex, drugs and rock and roll. You see the struggles of trying to make it big, of the want for success in the U.S., of reaching the top and the realization that everything will be judged on your past success and the fear of being a 1 hit wonder. Its all here, the rise, the fall, the family drama, and some real tragedy too. You don't have to be a Falco fan to enjoy this movie, anyone interested in pop or rock music and the lifestyle will be interested. Also includes some great Falco songs, his U.S. hits and those in Germany.

Well, this story does not surprise me at all. Behind every talented music star there are sad and tragical stories.

Addicted to booze and drugs, involved with a lying woman who dragged him into a destructive relation, being the son of a dominant and possessive mother, Falco has all the planets aligned to become the greatest German speaking singer and an definite star of the 80's and 90's.

Falco's music is much more than those very hot hits he put in the charts.

The actor who plays him does it good (he has a light resemblances to Johhny Depp) and I only criticize his poor moves on the guitar or bass.

The cinematographic language (colors, texture, photography) is just the perfect one!

I feel happy for having watched this movie, but somehow I feel sad for knowing Falco's story.

Long live to the greatest German singer and 80's star!!!!

Falco always starts the party...and now a dvd about his life...perfect! Some might now like this movie, but if you're a fan of Falco, you should at least watch it. It has all the popular songs.

The company that released this dvd gets 5 stars all on its own. I bought the dvd and it plays on my dvd player, has subtitles as well. The movie is definitely worth watching if you're a Falco fan. I'd urge you to rent it first to see if you like it enough to buy. I thought the movie was wonderful and the actor playing Falco did a great job.
