My Review of the Amy Film about Amy Winehouse was published today in the German Jewish newspaper Juedische Allgemeine.  In it I write it pulls you along, even if you did not know her that much, like on a helter skelter without happy end.  In my opinion a must see, because of the fact that she was in ramp light of and the laughing stock of the world.  The movie reveals hard and challenging details, including about the way we consume media.

Contrary to other reports, I feel that her parents were quite ordinary people, evidently at times helpless and clumsy with both Amy Winehouse personal problems, as well as the later intensity of her stardom.

The film suggests rather thaat those who tried to make the most of her career financially, most of all her second manager Raye Cosbert operated potentially reckless with regard to her integrity and well being.
