Amy Winehouse and Her Father
Crossposted from Haaretz
The only impressive thing about “My Daughter Amy,” the film about the British Grammy-winning singer Amy Winehouse, who died July 23 at age 27, are the photos of her infancy and childhood. The film, first shown on Britain’s Channel 4 about a year ago, is airing tonight and over the weekend on local Channel 8.
There is a frame of a baby carriage holding a baby with beautiful, flashing eyes, and in the corner of the frame is an odd date, 1992. It was surely a mistake recorded by the video camera of Mitch Winehouse, the singer’s father. This detail is just one that adds to the overall false and forced feel of the film.
