By 1986, Nico, the brutally cheek-boned beauty who had cemented her place in rock n roll history performing with The Velvet Underground on possibly the greatest album of all time, was living in drug-addled circumstances in a rented room in Manchester. This evocative biopic from Italian director Susanna Nicchiarelli dramatises the final, diminished two years of the singer’s life and features a fantastic, fearless performance from Danish actor Trine Dyrholm (Festen, All you Need is Love) in the lead role. She depicts a battered icon supported by a rag bag bunch of characters, including devoted manager Richard (John Gordon Sinclair), as she embarks on an eventful tour of Eastern Europe.
