Movie Info

The Nov. 13, 2015 terrorist attack in Paris claimed 130 lives around the city--89 of them at the Eagles of Death Metal's Bataclan Theatre concert. Debuting MONDAY, FEB. 13 (10:05-11:30 p.m. ET/PT), the HBO Documentary Films presentation EAGLES OF DEATH METAL: NOS AMIS (OUR FRIENDS) spotlights the American rock band as they recount their experiences before and after the tragic events. The film explores the deep bonds between band co-founders Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme (also a member of Queens of the Stone Age), as well as the intense connection the band has always had with its devoted fans, which moved them to return to Paris to perform once again in Feb. 2016. Directed by Colin Hanks and produced by Live Nation Productions and Company Name, EAGLES OF DEATH METAL: NOS AMIS (OUR FRIENDS) is a portrait of resilience in the face of unspeakable horror and a life-affirming coda to the events of Nov. 13. Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme's close friendship, coupled with a profound sense of responsibility to help the Bataclan survivors cope with their physical and emotional wounds, inspired the band to return to Paris, first to perform with U2 at a rescheduled concert three weeks after the attacks, and later, to finish its own Paris show at the Olympia concert hall.

Emotional portrait of a frontman at the center of a horrific attack, but it doesn't feel quite complete.

It's a pileup of sorrow, survivor guilt, anger and defiance that sometimes grows unruly.

If you didn't know much about the band before, you'll be a fan soon enough. That's before the horror of the attack is recalled.

However incomplete, Nos Amis nevertheless stands as an engrossing portrait of the power of honesty and friendship, the permanence of art, and the perseverance of the human spirit.
