'A warm tribute to Pulp and their home town of Sheffield.'
A very human warm tribute to Pulp and the Northern city, Sheffield that's home. Florian Habicht's movie follows Jarvis Cocker and the band members as they prepare to mark their 25th 2012 anniversary concert in their native Sheffield. It's gentle, unassuming, laid back, infectious and nostalgic. The camera politely accosts Sheffielders as they chat about life, love and of course Jarvis Cocker. It's not the glitz and superficial glamour that the pop world offers, Cocker has his feet locked in reality. Comments from band members, visiting fans and concert footage, Habicht's documentary is a fitting portrait of a great band that just happens to be back it their home town. A warm, gentle and infectious tribute to Pulp.
What better than Pulp's 'Common People' to begin and end the day.
