GREAT SINGER'S BiOGRAPHY
on February 27, 2016
I am a huge fan of Tina Turner. I've grown up with her song. The best song of mine is Private Dancer. Whenever I hear that song, I feel her agony and pain suffering from everything she suffered from her husband and I truely admire her endurance and even forgiveness.
I know already about her story through mass media and the movie was not all new. But seeing her story again was not all cliche.
She met Ike Turner at a concert where he was singing and she had a chance to sing his song. She sang most beautifully and Ike fell in love with her song at once. Then he married with her.
They teamed up and Ike used her as a singer and made her sing that he composed. He used her every minute of it without mercy. He even beat her if he has to to train her, to make her sing better. For him, she is just a singing robot. To oil her, he has to beat her.
She tries to love him and tries to make him satistied. She waited and waited till he comes back as a good husband but he never did.
Finally she ran away from him when he met the white guy who was a well known producer who admire her song.
That is the moment she had a chance to have a debut to be a solo singer.
She then shines more then ever. The movie finishes when she sings one of the biggest hit single What's Love got to do with it? But she had more his songs, I mean whay more songs in the future.
On the other hand, Ike becomes nobody.
That's how it goes. The good guy shines and the bad guy being punisheed.
Like a fairy tale.
There's a good world exist still.
It's a small little movie and the leading actress was way more beautiful then the actual Tina Turner but It was ok. IThe movie is a fantasy after all Laurence Fishburne who acted as Ike Turner acted beautifully. He has two faces, a lover man and an evil. He was always a good actor.
I am glad that I've seen this movie. The only thing I wanted to see more was her singing my favourite song PRIVATE DANCER.
