Kurt Cobain About a son
by AJ Schnack
(USA, 2006, 96 min, original version with French subtitles)

Kurt Cobain - About A Son is an intimate and moving portrait of the late musician and artist Kurt Cobain, fully narrated by himself - away from the horrors of celebrity, the tabloid teasers, and without any attempt of grunge aesthetic. What created the director AJ Schnack is more like a deep story of Kurt Cobain, collected at the source, his successes and his failures, thoughts, experiences, immersing the viewer into the intimate sphere of a legendary figure in the rock culture. Based on more than twenty-five hours of recorded interviews by the journalist Michael Azerrad renowned for his book Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana, the film offers a new introduction to one of the most interesting and the most important figures of the culture of the late 20th century. These interviews whose recordings were never released, are informal, colored with humor, sincere. Kurt Cobain tells in his life - his childhood and adolescence, the discovery of music, the effects of fame - and poses a watchful eye on his life, his music, his time. They draw a highly personal portrait. Shot entirely in 35mm, the film brings the Northwest America back to life through meaningful details: the forest exploitation factory where his father worked, the small bars where local groups gave their first concerts, ever covered sky.
