'Frank' is a story of odd musicians each coping with their own mental and emotional hindrances, all while attempting to cooperate long enough to become the great artistic band they strive to be. The group is plagued by this constant trouble, yet they still manage to squeeze out a few heavily unique tunes. Quirky and slightly dark humor coincide to an almost upbeat vibe for the first half. It's enjoyable. The second half ditches the humor almost entirely and borderlines on depressing. It never fully tips in either direction through the whole duration. The bittersweet ending lost some of it's emotional punch for me because of this. Worth watching for the supreme originality and unconventional characters.

This has to be the most oddest, touching and funniest movie that I have seen this year. The movie is about a keyboardist looking for his big break joins an eclectic pop band fronted by the mysterious Frank - the lead-singer who never removes his paper mâché head. This is by far my favorite movie of 2014. The acting in the movie was freaking fantastic, the writing was well written and it was new and refreshing, not like other movie these days. The main character of the film Frank played by Michael Fassbender, and I have to say frank is the most interesting character in this whole film. The other characters in the film are interesting to but I think frank is most interesting to me.

Wahnsinniges Genie

Schon immer war der Mix aus Wahnsinn und Kreativität die Triebfeder der Kunst. Geht das überhaupt beides: "Normal" zu sein UND kreativ? Oder andersrum: Kann man mental derangiert sein und kreativ? Frank ist jedenfalls sehr, sehr ungewohnt, so dass sich einige vor Lachen auf die Schenkel klopfen werden und andere gar nicht wissen, was eigentlich los ist. - Hier also die Geschichte von Frank Sidebottom. Sie ist zur Hälfte wahr und zur Hälfte nicht. Sie handelt davon, wie ein junger Musiker (der davon träumt, berühmt zu werden) von einer Band angeheuert wird, deren Sänger sein Gesicht mit einer Pappmaske verdeckt. Jon Ronson heisst der Musiker, der in der Band von Frank Sidebottom spielte. Ronson ist ein britischer Musik-Journalist und verfasste auch Drehbücher. Sidebottom hiess mi...
