Hedwig And The Angry Inch * John Cameron Mitchell * 2001

This film played in Seattle the second time I was there and I already wanted to see it then, but things went otherwise… Too bad that it took so long, because “Hedwig and the angry inch” is a very enjoyable film. Hanzel was born on the Eastern side of the wall in Berlin, but ended up as Hedwig in the USA. The story of his/her life and the half-sexchange is told in flashbacks, great scenes and Hedwig’s own songs. The film compares to films such as “24 Hour Party People”, “Almost Famous”, “Velvet Goldmine” and “Boogie Nights” playing in the music scene of the 70’ies and told with wonderfull dialogues and humour. If you like the mentioned films, don’t miss Hedwig and his angry inch!
