markus m An often visually spectacular and creative film, with engaging characters and drama. 8-/10 Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member There is just one thing. I don't like Badding. And neither this film. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Perussuomalaista jöötiä. Ei oikein päätä eikä häntää, vaikka olikin elämänkertaleffa :D Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member ihana elokuva raulista. Janne tekee heinon suorituksen, vaikkakin studio julmahuvi pilkahtelee siellä täällä... Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member As I like his music a lot, the "fairytale biography" of BADDING, famous rock / pop star in 70's and 80's really touched me. He was an artist who was too shy to sing, too sensitive to love, too ugly to be loved, but still everyone adored him. He died young, because of alcohol and drug abuse, without true friends. But his magical voice is for ever. I saw this first time in movie festival in a medieval castle on a beautiful summer evening and that experience really blew my mind. Rock on Badding :) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Nice movie about bit unsteady Finnish rock singer whom died young as all good rock singer do... filmed as his biography...
