About Documentary »Nico: In Memoriam«
Not a documentary but the the ruins of an attempted documentary. Bernd Gaul’s film »Nico: In Memoriam« is just that. Short concert clips and Warhol material united do not create documentary but a surprise guest at the viewing saves the day. In 1985 Bernd Gaul decided to film a documentary on the Velvet Underground – »Then the most important band of our time«. Loud Reed changed his mind and Nico died. His collection of clips are what is left.
