From Amazon.co.uk

Tina Turner, that dynamic diva of pop/soul/R&B from the 1960s to the 90s, sings like a woman whose life story is every bit as rough and tough as her voice. And What's Love Got to Do With It, based on her autobiographical account (in I, Tina, written with Kurt Loder) of her years under the iron fist of her abusive husband and musical partner/Svengali Ike, is further proof of what we've always known about Tina: She's what you call a survivor. The movie is sort of the Disney version of Tina Turner's story--a glossy but thoroughly enjoyable, old-fashioned showbiz biopic with laughs, tears, great music, and outrageous (but faithful) period decor, costumes, makeup, and hairstyles. Our Heroine triumphs not only over the rigorous demands of her career in the music business, but finally manages to bust out of her troubled, violent marriage as well and become her own person. This is a movie that'll have you shouting at the top of your lungs: "You go, girl!" --Jim Emerson

Product Description

audio in italiano.e' la vera tormentata storia della cantante rock tina turner. tratto dalla sua autobiografia, il film prende le mosse da quando tina comincia a cantare nel coro della chiesa. il suo spirito originale e ribelle la rende ben presto una cantante di successo al fianco di ike, che diventa suo marito. la vita coniugale pero' non e' delle migliori. la colonna sonora contiene il meglio della discografia del duo ike & tina e anche molte canzoni della carriera solista della turner. la regia e' diligente, ottimi i due interpreti principali: angela bassett e laurence fishburne, candidati entrambi all'oscar.

5.0 out of 5 stars TRIUMPHANT STORY OF A REAL LIFE SURVIVOR... 1 Jan 2003
By Lawyeraau HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is an incredible, highly energized film about the life of rock and roll diva, Tina Turner, and her stormy relationship with her controlling and physically abusive husband, Ike Turner. Award calibre performances are turned in by Angela Bassett, as Tina, and Laurence Fishburne, as Ike. They are both absolutely riveting.
Ms. Bassett plays Tina with all the earthy charm and sexual magnetism of the real life Tina Turner. Laurence Fishburne gives an amazingly effective performance as Ike, at once both repellent and charismatic. The movie focuses on their relationship, one which sowed the seeds for the Tina Turner we know today.
What started out as a match made in heaven, quickly soured as Tina naturally took the lead musically in their Ike and Tina Turner Revue. When it became clear that Tina was the one for whom the fans were clamoring, Ike did not take lightly to being second banana, and their relationship became one of domestic discord and abuse, with Ike easing into the role of abusive husband with relative ease.
When Tina finally had had enough, she divorced Ike, taking nothing from the marriage except her children and her show business name, the name she earned. From there, she went on to rebuild her life and career, becoming the world renowned rock and roll diva she is today. Ike, a substance abuser, ended up in prison for narcotics possession and fell into relative obscurity, little more than a footnote in rock and roll history.
This is a film well worth watching, with great performances and great music.

5.0 out of 5 stars TINA is simply the best!! 25 Oct 2004
By Great White VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This film needs only one word to describe it. That word is POWER! Power belonging to the riviting soundtrack, power to the performances and power from the story that was tina's life. This is my favourite film. The story of Tina needs to be seen for you to understand exactly what she had to go through to get where she is today; one hell of a rock diva. Angela Bassett should have had an oscar for her performance as Tina as she brought her character alive. When she sang, you sang. When she was beat by Ike, you felt the pain and when she fought back, you cheered. I'm so glad that she came out of it the way she did. She was a young woman who was scared to becoming a woman who was strong. Well done tina, we are all proud. Laurence Fishburne played a great Ike. He was vicious but also had the charisma for the ladies. Although i dont think that he ever cared or loved her by the way he treated her. I mean what husband gets his wife out of a hospital bed just to be able to go to a gig in New York, then he gets upset when she says she cant sing. What was up with that guy? He cared more about the fame than he did about her. And when she got noticed more than him, he just couldn't take it. Then started the violent rage and it was hard to watch when he got mad. It says at the end Ike was thrown in jail. So he should have been....maybe a lot sooner. For Assault, rape, drug abuse and embezzelment. For the real Tina fans, you are treated to a fantastic concert performance first with Angela as Tina then The real Tina. If you aint seen it, you cant afford to miss it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is one for tha sisters, GO TINA GIRL!! 1 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Bassett girl, you are the cream in my coffee, can I get a witness?!?!?!?!?! If Angela Bassett didn't get the oscar for this, she should have done. I'm sure my heart stopped twice, maybe three times, during this film, due to the unrelenting and distressing content it throws at the viewer.... This film is a gem, a must, a necessity, you must own it for Fishburne's performance at the very least. You'll want to hug the real Tina Turner forever, she is such a strong woman. I wanted to give it more than five stars but the people at Amazon wouldn't let me, so just buy it and you'll see for yourself. Best biopic of the century!!

This is a film well worth watching, with great performances and great music. Look for the live stage performance by the real life Tina Turner at the end of the film. That alone is worth the price of this video.
