NICO ICON plus
LA CICATRICE INTERIEURE (Inner Scar)
1. The Nico Documentary: NICO ICON
(1995) 67 Minutes
director: Susanne Ofteringer
starring: Nico · Lou Reed · Jim Morrison · Tina
Aumont · Andy Warhol · Jackson Brown
shockingly grim documentary delves into the many lives of Christa Päffgen,
otherwise known as Nico, the International counter-culture diva ["Famous
for just being Nico"]. She drifted - almost cluelessly yet gleefully
- from cutsie German mädchen to the first of the supermodels, to
glamorous diva of Andy Warhol's ultra-hip rock group the Velvet Underground,
to cult item, junkie and hag. As her story unravels, so does her life.
This is the tale of a beautiful woman who could not bear her beauty
and ultimately didn't care enough to live. Nico was dead by age 49,
from a cerebral hemorrhage, in July 1988.
film also concentrates on her many love affairs, from Alain Delon [she
gave birth to his child] to Lou Reed, from Jim Morrison [of the Doors]
to vanilla pop singer Jackson Brown, from movie director Philippe Garrel
to musician John Cale. European actress Tina Aumont (ARCANA,
PRINCESS, Sergio Martino's TORSO,
et al) also talks about her whirlwind relationship with Nico
in the early '80s.
