Rate this movie Gladys – 08/23/2022 Report Throughout the film, we come across his manager too often, too bad and not enough of the King of Rock on stage. ALYS – 07/07/2022 Report Excellent film with obviously music that awakens our memories.
This film shows the major role of contemplation in the evolution of music.
There was music before Elvis, then after Elvis.
The interest of the film is to discover the life of this icon through the prism of his impressario…toxic relationships, with a young man manipulated and exploited.
I loved the film and the performances of the two main actors. Sab – 06/07/2022 Report Very realistic, an atmosphere that draws you in. I was skeptical and I was touched and amazed…. Poor and wonderful Elvis… They knew how to bring the Rock legend back to life…. Top production nunchakuman – 06/07/2022 Report Good film about the life of Elvis Presley and the dark side of show business.
The scenes where Elvis Presley sings in concert are great, especially for those who love Rock'n'roll and Elvis Presley fans, but it's a shame that these scenes don't do not last longer. misstititte – 03/07/2022 Report breathtaking
