The Boy in Liverpool (2009)

Original title: Nowhere Boy

Directed by: Sam Taylor-Wood

Written by: Matt Greenhalgh

With Aaron Johnson, Kristin Scott Thomas, Anne-Marie Duff, Thomas Brodie-Sangster

Simple, unpretentious, but strong emotions!

The film's director Sam Taylor-Wood tells the story of John Lennon before the fame. In fact, recounts the moment just prior to that would define the fate of Lennon, in his diving in the adolescent world, full of anxieties, questions, doubts, riots, rebellion and a great lack of affection.

For those not familiar with the personal story of the Beatles, this movie is a beautiful acquisition, revealing in a fragile world, suffered and irreverent, told in a way loving, caring, beautiful (photographically speaking), although it contains no originality film.

"Nowhere Boy" tells us a crucial, difficult and extremely painful in the life of a young man torn between two women: a distant mother, sorry and distressed by their poor choices, and an aunt, protective, loving in his way, but extremely cold and demanding. A world split between pleasure - represented by the music and mother - and safety studies and a life "balanced", represented by his aunt Mimi.

For Beatles fans (almost the whole world, I imagine) the film may also show some interest in local capital in the course of the band, as the red gate of "Strawberry Fields" or the "Cavern Club", a place where the Beatles presented 292 times (February 1961 to August 1963).

But do not expect a great movie about the "Fab Four", for "Nowhere Boy" is not a film about the band, but about the world of John teenager. What is not without interest, of course.

At the same time, the meeting with Paul McCartney, though little explored by their emotional side, you can fill your eyes and soul of a fan ... after all, just imagine what it would appear that there was, what is and always will be The Beatles, is enough to cause chills.

"Nowhere Boy" is a film suitable for Beatles fans, fans of John Lennon, Paul McCartney fans, music fans or simply for those who are to watch a beautiful movie, but with no great pretensions to become a landmark in cinema history.
