From the moment the band Lucie arrived on the Czech music scene and instantly became a legend, they’ve been enhancing our lives with hits that have really got under our skin. In this unique documentary, we are given the opportunity to see the band on the big screen for the first time and experience all their highs and lows, this time without the bogus stories dredged up by the tabloids. Director David Sís doesn’t delve into the circumstances surrounding various past breakups, instead he examines the reasons why the group always gets back together again. Via a sequence of flashbacks, the film draws audiences into its narrative such that, for a period of ninety minutes, they, too, get a true taste of the rock star lifestyle. With a real feel for the story, the director combines his own material with television archive footage to create a remarkable cocktail which brings back to life all the things that connect us with Lucie: from our first encounter, when we still had a Walkman hanging off our belts, and the gala night at the opera, to the concerts sold out within minutes.
