The director and star of a drama about the latter years of the cult singer talk about her unusual life and how she battled against her beauty. Unlike every previous dramatic portrayal of the star, which focused on her Dolce Vita years, when she attracted lovers from Jim Morrison to Jackson Browne to Alain Delon, Nico chronicles the final two, uncelebrated years of life.
Nico was also overweight and, sometimes, malodorous. As a personality, Nico is often portrayed in the movie as obstinate, self-involved, paranoid and reckless.
But she also displays a punky defiance and she had enough focus to create some of the most unusual, important andmost personal music in her career, on solo albums like The Marble Index, Desertshore and The End.
At her concerts in the 80s, several of which I caught in New York, Nico exuded a morbidity so transfixing it later inspired some observers to cite her as the first goth, presaging artistic ghouls from Siouxsie Sioux to Bauhaus.
As portrayed in the film, Nico also possessed an inner life as strange and haunted as her music. Metacritic Reviews. Photo Gallery. Trailers and Videos.
