Bohemian Rhapsody

Available on PrimeVideo the mouvie that brought on stage Freddie Mercury and Queen

Excellent is the first word that comes to mind if I have to describe Bohemian Rhapsody, the biopic that tells the story, and the music, of Freddie Mercury and Queen.

The 80s were strange, chaotic years, but they had a soundtrack that the Millennials dream of: Michael Jackson, Madonna, Dire Streats, Elton John, David Bowie, Sting and of course Queen.

These are the years in which people start talking openly about homosexuality and then about AIDS, the “plague of the century”. But these are also the years in which widespread well-being carries moral responsibilities and then there are events like the Live Aid of Wembley and USA for Africa with We Are the World.

In by Bryan Singer you find everything: unconsciousness, transgression, but also loneliness and fear. As I said in the plot there is perhaps some flaw, but the soundtrack (2019 Oscar best sound) repays any mistake and the interpretation of Rami Malek (2019 Oscar best actor) is so intense and “true” to move in more than one scene.

Even with the face of a good boy and without the “physicality” of Freddy Mercury (who was objectively a great cool) Malek excites every time he gets on stage, perfect in his movements and gestures, just look at the almost maniacal attention with which the Wembley performance was recreated in the final scenes
