The story of what happened after

Warhol and the Velvet Underground…

NICO, 1988

Directed by SUSANNA NICCHIARELLI/2018/93mins.

Starring Trine Dyrholm

NICO, 1988 features a tour de force performance from Trine Dyrholm’s as the aging Nico (aka Christa Päffgen), interpreting rather than impersonating the famed singer-songwriter as she approaches 50. Leading a solitary existence in Manchester Nico’s life and career are on the ropes, a far cry from her glamorous days as a Warhol superstar and celebrated vocalist for The Velvet Underground. Nico’s new manager Richard (John Gordon Sinclair) convinces her to hit the road again and tour Europe to promote her latest album. Struggling with her demons and the consequences of a muddled life, she longs to rebuild a relationship with the son Ari (Sandor Funtek) she lost custody of long ago. A brave and uncompromising musician, Nico’s is the story of an artist, a mother, and the woman behind the icon.

“CRITICS PICK. BRILLIANTLY UNSENTIMENTAL. Dyrholm, fantastic, fully captures the faded charisma of the woman whose life reads like a Who’s Who of the New York midcentury art scene.”-Jeanette Catsoulis, The New York Times

“HAUNTING AND DEEPLY AFFECTING. Dyrholm’s portrayal is MASTERFUL.”-Ashley Naftule, Under the Radar

“Dyrholm is at her multifaceted best. A singer in her own right, she injects the aging songstress with real pain and passion.”-Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

“Nico, 1988 offers all I want from this kind of movie: a sense of what time with someone unknowable might have been like.”-Alan Scherstuhl, The Village Voice
