Product description

Product Description

Marley is the definitive film about one of the most loved international icons of the 20th Century, Bob Marley. His music and message of love and redemption are known throughout the world and his story has finally been brought to life in this definitive work.

Acclaimed director Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland, State of Play, Life in a Day) joined forces with the Marley family to direct the ultimate authorised documentary film on the life, legacy and global impact of one of the most influential musicians in history. Marley marks the first time ever that Bob’s family has authorised the use of their own private Bob Marley archives.

Bob Marley’s universal appeal, impact on music history and his role as a social and political prophet is both unique and unparalleled. His music and message transcend culture, language and creed and resonate around the world today as powerfully as when he was alive. Only a handful of musicians have ever achieved such an impact and Bob Marley, though his life was far too short, stands strongly among them.

“I think what’s great about the film is though there have been a lot of things done on Bob, I think this one will give people a more emotional connection to Bob’s life as a man – not just a reggae legend or a mythical figure, but his life as a man.” – Ziggy Marley

From Amazon.co.uk

Bob Marley's musical (and cultural) shadow is so large that the man clearly needed an authoritative documentary portrait--and Marley steps in with all the right stuff to fill the role. Working with official rights to the music and access to Marley's family and friends, Oscar-winning documentarian Kevin Macdonald (One Day in September) creates a thorough account that hits the major points, not stinting on some of the less admirable aspects of Marley's life (including his brood of children fathered with women other than his patient wife, Rita, whose presence indicates just how much she puts Marley's legacy above his personal infidelities). Especially interesting is the sketch of Bob Marley's youth, as a mixed-race--and thus socially ostracized--kid from the village of Nine Mile who began to put together a reggae sound with a group of like-minded musicians in Jamaica in the late '50s and early '60s. That period comes to life, and the account of Marley's ascent, while familiar from such sagas, has its share of offbeat incidents. His death, at age 36 in 1981, does not dominate the movie, but Macdonald does a good job of getting that story laid out. In the meantime, the music and the concert footage are more than enough to justify the movie's existence, and Macdonald makes time to include thoughts about politics, ganja smoking, and Rastafarianism, too. If it's not the final word on Marley, it's an excellent start. --Robert Horton

You may well wonder if you can justify putting a music documentary in the cinamas before dvd/blu-ray release. Well when it's this good,yes you can.
After reading the warts 'n' all RITA MARLEY book "No woman,no cry",i did wonder if this movie would be as brutally honest about Bob,the negatives aswell as the positives. Certainly it shows mostly Bob as a good man,which of course he was,but it's not expecting you to think he was an angel,he didn't stick to just his wife,he liked his women and they liked him. This may've been skipped a little from Rita's book,but it gets to the point. The music is stunning,new tracks and old,some great footage and an interesting story well told. The interview with those that knew him are done with obvious love and affection for a true legend. From his upbringing to his adulthod,to his times with Rita to that shooting,his toe injury and of course his sad death. This explains why he is such a legend and why he will be missed,his music will live on,how could it not?

I've always enjoyed the music of the legendary Bob Marley. I thought I was a close follower of his life, but this documentary hits all the right notes in helping to know him through his music. It's clear that music was his purpose and watching this tonight has just reminded me of the power of the human spirit. One Love!
