Synopsis: Archival footage and personal testimonials present an intimate portrait of the life and career of British singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse.

A look into the life a singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse. For a fan this may be old news, for those who are not familiar with her life and work, this is a good introduction.

Any documentary of a pop star who dies young runs the risk of elevating that person to the status of "legend" , usually just because they are dead. Here the film makers avoid this mistake and give us a fairly unbiased portrait of this extremely talented yet extremely troubled artist.

The level of talent exhibited by Winehouse is undeniable, but the more we learn of her personal life and troubles, the more we pity her and wonder why she is so self-destructive. Although we are offered possible explanations we are never told what the answers are and this credit to the makers for leaving these questions unanswered.

All in all, Amy is worth watching.
