Critic Reviews for Nico, 1988
"Nico, 1988" is worth a look... for its portrait of a spirit absolutely unyielding, who expected the worst from life and found cold, beautiful comfort when she got it.
There is a low-key blandness to Susanna Nicchiarelli's film... elevated by a subtle, powerful performance by German actress Trine Dyrholm, whose complex and spot-on portrayal of Nico gives the film soul, albeit a lonely one.
The film leaves one feeling that few humans have ever been quite so alone as Christa Päffgen, and yet so crowded.
Yet the star of Susanna Nicchiarelli's freely fictionalized biopic, Trine Dyrholm, finds fierce beauty in the woman Nico has become.
Instead, she concentrates on how this woman's self-destructive charisma kept people around her and chaos around every corner - this is Nico as a black-hole sun.
Dyrholm, an actress of formidable presence who expertly handles her own singing as well as the acting, gives a strong, truthful, unflinching performance that powers the film the way Christa's energy powered the bands she was in those late days.
Audience Reviews for Nico, 1988
Trine Dyrholm offers us a jaw-dropping performance - intense, committed and unforgettable - as an aged star struggling with depression and drug addiction, while this honest character study paints a three-dimensional portrait of who Christa Päffgen was in her last years before her death.
