DIARY - FINALLY MY SEARCH FOR SUGAR MAN IS DONE

12:50 da tarde


Os Abba nunca teriam alcançado o sucesso estrondoso e mundial nos anos 80, se a Australia não se tivesse rendido às suas músicas da forma como o fez. "Abba The Movie" deixa isso bem claro, assim como várias entrevistas dadas pela banda.

Embora de uma forma completamente diferente, o mesmo se pode dizer de Sixto Rodriguez, esta história seria bem diferente, se não fosse a Africa do Sul.

É engraçado pensar em como um país pode ser preponderante no futuro de potenciais artistas. De como, o que é indiferente para uns, pode ser magnífico para outros.

Lembro-me que a primeira vez que ouvi falar deste documentário, fiquei com imensa vontade de o ver, mas depois talvez por falta de oportunidade, o tempo foi passando.

Finalmente vi!

Mais do que comovente, é um filme de encantar para adultos, adorei!
O que mais me impressionou foi a constante humildade de Rodriguez, que merece todo o bem que este reconhecimento lhe trouxe.
Adorei o filme e adorei as músicas.
