|Main cast:||Jean-Luc Godard, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman|
|Synopsis:||Sympathy for the Devil was made at a time when The Rolling Stones were at the peak of their creative powers and Jean-Luc Godard, who after making some of the great French New Wave cinema had taken a revolutionary political direction with his filmmaking. Possessing Godard's idiosyncratic style it can be viewed as two movies in one. In the first, rock and roll superstars The Rolling Stones create their latest song 'Sympathy for the Devil' in a London studio as they compose material for their forthcoming 'Beggar's Banquet' album. In the second, a series of abstract fictional vignettes, Godard probes topics as diverse as race, pornography and the irony of interviewing celebrities, which features a unique demonstration by Black Power revolutionaries and a TV interview with one Eve Democracy about the relationship between culture and revolution. For many people the main attraction of Sympathy For The Devil is seeing the band (Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman) take a loose outline of a song and turn it into a stirring, fully realized creation. Beginning as a ballad, the track gradually acquires a pulsating groove, which gets Jagger into a rousing vocal display of soulful emotion that Godard is lucky enough to capture on film. Down the years the film has been seen in two versions and has been distributed both as Sympathy for the Devil and One + One, this 2 DVD set now presents audiences with the opportunity to experience both versions.|
