It actually got loud

European premiere of the documentation “It might get loud” at the Berlinale. After a short introduction by director Davis Guggenheim and The Edge, guitarist of U2, we watch a journey through the history of electronic guitar music looking at the works of three famous and influential guitarists: Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), The Edge (U2) and Jack White (The White Stripes).  They meet for an exchange of thoughts about their play and their influences. Old footage of their early works in former groups is shown, the audience laughs. The musicians show us their important places where music was produced. Animations follow, a lot of excerpts from live concerts and – you probably saw it coming – a jamming session of the guitarists. While the sound technician at the Friedrichstadtpalast probably thought a movie with such a title has to be played really loud everything else about the movie is likable, it is funny, entertaining, gives a deep insight into the question why these people became musicians and guitarists especially and there is a lot of  good music being played in the movie. So, go and see it.
