Movie Info

Approaching age 50, singer/songwriter Nico leads a solitary existence -- far from her days as a Warhol superstar and celebrated vocalist for the Velvet Underground in the 1960s. Her life and career on the fringes, Nico's new manager convinces her to hit the road again and tour in Europe to promote her latest album. Struggling with demons and the consequences of a muddled life, she longs to rebuild a relationship with her son, whose custody she lost long ago.

Audience Reviews for Nico, 1988

  • Aug 08, 2018
    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.
