Critic Reviews for Nico, 1988
"I'm selective about my audience," says the singer. "I don't need everybody to like me." With a dour, sophisticated film that won't be to everyone's taste, writer-director Nicchiarelli seems to have taken those words to heart.
Dyrholm is aces as Nico. She uncannily summons the singer's brooding performing style, along with her many complications.
"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.
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.
