Reviews

Documentary about the making of U2's album 'Achtung Baby' - the album, released in 1991, which marked a seminal moment in the career of U2. Having followed the breakthrough success of 'The Joshua Tree' with the difficult and much-criticised 'Rattle and Hum', the band were at a crossroads. The sessions for the album were riddled with conflict, with the band even toying with the idea of breaking up. However, an act of joint inspiration saved the album and convinced the group to continue. Director Davis Guggenheim revisits the story of the album's making with the aid of archive footage and interviews with the band.

Great documentary about the greatest band on earth.
Taking the viewer back and forth between the Joshua Tree years up to now...seeing how US saw all those years and all those changes, getting a glimps at how it's like to do music when you're U2 .
At one point I'd wished the film to last on and on, to just jump onto the recording studio and start playing with them.
Hope to see more of similar films about them and their music !

U2 know their last 2 albums were not very good. This was the time to go back and explain the making of the brilliant Achtung Baby. I wont go into detail because you should really own this Documentary. Its a very honest account from one of the biggest bands of all time.

great documentary about one of the best albums of all time!! the only dissapointment is that it spends alot of time on u2s past and not enough about the album itself!! but it's good to see u2 from recently giving some of the tracks a makeover and very interesting to hear their views on their work!! not really enough about the making of the album though!! not excellent but in my opinion very good!! worth the money!!

Very well thought out piece of film making and interesting insight into one of the worlds most enduring bands. A real pleasure to watch, and loved the bit about Bono's approach to song writing!
Well worth getting if your a fan, or know someone who is! (They'll be your biggest fan if you do! :-) )
Only gripe is coverage of Glastonbury performance; there wasn't enough.

This documentary took me back in time. I have followed U2's career since I was a little girl when my older brother was given "Boy" as a casette tape for Christmas in 1980. The film was very interesting as it gave the viewer some sort of insight in the making of Achtung Baby and the difficulties the band was going through at the time. Maybe that's why I consider Achtung Baby their "darkest" album. And maybe, the most beautiful one in many ways...(no, I am not forgetting The Unforgettable Fire and/or The Joshua Tree:-))
I have just received U22 today - a cool 2 cd set with clear crisp sound even though it's live recordings (from the 360 tour)- I love it! Somehow "From The Sky Down and U22 have made me re-discover U2 and I will definately go and see them again next time they come around even if they don't come to Denmark - I've travelled elsewhere to see them before.

Format: DVD
Originally included in the Super and Über Deluxe "Achtung Baby" 20th Anniversary editons,"From The Sky Down",now released separately on DVD and BluRay with a few extras,seems tantalising at first. Beginning with the band about to take the stage at Glastonbury 2011,you are soon taken back in time to the world of Berlin just after the wall came down and join the main collaborators as they reminisce about one of U2's classic albums. As other reviewers have written,it would spoil any potential viewing to go into too much detail regarding this documentary about "Achtung Baby". So I'll keep my words brief and offer an opinion.

Personal? Yes. Informative? Yes & no. Does it reveal anything you don't already know? Yes,but not as much as a devoted fan would want. If you're looking for a classic album style doco like the one for "The Joshua Tree",you won't find that kind of detail here. Maybe the film makers were told what they can/can't talk about or have decided on giving a casual insight into the U2 creative process that would appeal to general audiences as well as fans. Interspersed with interviews and a few modern day performances,for me,it all seems too brief and sanitised. When it finished I thought.."is that all there is?". We're talking about one of the most influential albums of the last 30 years so I did expect more info than what is revealed here. Even if some of the content is rare and previously unseen you feel like there is so much more that U2 don't want you to see or discuss.
