My rating: 3 out of 5

Its All Gone Pete Tong is a comedy following the tragic life of legendary Frankie Wilde. The story takes us through Frankie’s life from one of the best DJ’s alive, through subsequent battle with a hearing disorder, culminating in his mysterious disappearance from the scene. A genius in his own right, he clawed his way to the top of the DJ ranks, now living the opulent life of a superstar, he resides in his trophy villa in Ibiza with his trophy wife. This is when tragedy hits. Born with a hearing disorder he is rapidly going deaf with only one functioning ear to complete the new Ibiza season. How is he doing behind the decks? Horrible. How is he doing in the studio where he produces his remixes? Frankie dives into a low period, struggling with deafness in utter depression. After a year of locking himself away he emerges on the other side with a fresh attitude towards his affliction. He accepts his deafness and learns to function without sound. Will Frankie make it back to the DJ booth? Will his new single be any good? Will he get back his opulent old life or does he even want it back? When you can’t hear, things look very different.

Tragekomisk film kring den åkomma som många DJ:s får, hörselproblem. Bara i denna filmen går det så långt att han faktiskt blir döv. Många roliga scener som lättar upp denna film som egentligen är ganska tragisk. Kring hur en människa verkligen kan hamna på botten. Men ha tar sig därifrån. Roligt att den är filmad som en dokumentär i vissa delar och att de intervjuar kända DJ:s king Frank Wildes liv. Självklart härlig musik i filmen. Den är inte riktigt lika bra som Groove.
