Biography of queen frontman Freddie Mercury are far from exempt from the genre's typical clichés.
But Rami Malek impresses in the lead role, despite the large false teeth.
BIOGRAPHY. There is one thing that bothers significantly more than the other:
The oversized false teeth as the Rami Malek has been endowed with for the role as the Freddie Mercury (1946-1991), the rock group Queens the charismatic singer.
It's like when you've seen pictures of some celebrities who suddenly gained new tandgarnityr and the like have taken over the entire face. The first fifteen minutes, the film is about Maleks false teeth.
And it bothers. We in my group of friends who liked Queen, already from the early 1970s, before the broad breakthrough, never thought very much of Mercury's teeth or his androgynous charisma.
Here there is a lot of the cliches that artistbiografier usually contain. Life and careers are shortened, simplified, förytligas. It interferes less than the teeth.
I like among other things, that the movie clearly portrays how Freddie Mercury was the band's obvious star, but that he probably had never become something without guitarist Brian May , drummer Roger Taylor and bassist Roger Deacon .
Gwilym Lee , Ben Hardy and Joseph Mazello , who play them, no more space in which individuals in the film. But it is still engaging scenes that depict how the band was formed and how they forgave and reunited before the Live Aid concert in 1985 after the Mercury drop-out and a period of severe abuse. And even if there is nothing as detailed as that in ”Love & mercy” (2014), where we got to see the exactly how Brian Wilson wrote the masterpiece ”Good vibrations” to the Beach Boys , there are several scenes that intrusively shows how the band created some of Queens best songs.
You are affected by the relationship with the girlfriend Mary ( Lucy Boynton ), which can then be Mercury's best friend for life. Similarly, dig it pretty deep in his doubts about his own sexuality, before he admits to himself that he is gay.
In the song ”Bohemian rhapsody” sing Fredie Mercury:
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?
the Film ”Bohemian rhapsody” is both. And anyway a couple of entertaining hours of artist biographies. Where Rami Malek wins the fight against löständerna, last two hours, you think only of how good he is in the role.
