Blood, sweat and tears is a well-made, impressive film about the life of Andre Hazes, singer of typical Amsterdam tearjerkers. If you have lived in Holland the last 30 years, you maybe know the guy (and this review doesn't include spoilers). He has become even more popular after his dead. Andre Hazes was addicted to alcohol, cigarettes, unhealthy meal and in his younger years, girls. A typical pop star, sex & drugs & rock 'n roll type of life. In the movie he is depicted as a a depressive, lonely and very insecure man, like much entertainers and comedians. It is a sad story.Blood, Sweat and Tears shows three moments/episodes of his life: 1960, when he was about 9 years old and lives a terrible life in Amsterdam; 1980, during the period of his largest success and 2004, a several weeks before his goodbye concert in the Arena for 50.000 people. These episodes are scrambled in the film.All these episodes end dramatic. As a kid his father allow him sing for cash in bars and on the store in Amsterdam, although he denied his talent. Andre is discovered by tv star Johnny Kraaikamp. Together they made a record, that flopped. His father spends more and more time drinking in bars and subsequently becomes more and more aggressive. He beats up his wife regularly and in the end also beats up Andre...In 1980 he meets Tim. He is a producer of a record label and becomes his (only) friend. They create a lot of records together. It is Andre's most successful time. Nevertheless he was drunken most of the times, was everytime late at concerts and recordings or never showed up. Tim fulfills his dream to perform in the Concertgebouw, the classical melody hall of Amsterdam. There his father shows up suddenly. Tim lets him in vs the will of Andre, who has declared his father dead for years. He literally sings him away with.The friendship between Andre and Tim is under pressure, when Andre gets a relationship with a 15 year old woman (his soon wife Rachel). They come back together, when the relationship (temporarely) ended. Unfortunately Tim dies in a vehicle ruin and Andre loses his one and only friend. In 2004 his body and mind are end of life. His liver is enlarged, his heart is weak, he has diabetes and last but not least Andre has serious hearing problems. The last four weeks before his goodbye concert, we see Rachel taking care of him. In a stage she makes a lunch box with twee white sandwiches with meatballs. She puts a slice of lettuce between it, but takes it away again. Next to the sandwiches she puts two cans of beer and two plasters. Before Andre leaves to a concert, he becomes aggressive out of stress and insecurity and hurts his hands. In his vehicle he has beer everywhere.Yes, he made it to the concert. Yes, it was a success. A several days soon he dies, 53 years young. In the ten years after he becomes more popular than he's ever been. His memorial service takes zone in the Arena, a very successful musical about his life staged for years and actually this movie. It is a tiny bit sourly. It is a thin line between tribute and exploitation.I don't know if his life is depicted well in Blood, Sweat and Tears. The documentary 'Zij gelooft in mij' is maybe better. The film seems very balanced. Like I said, I'm not a fanatic of Andre Hazes and I don't know either if this film is interesting for folks outside The Netherlands. Nevertheless I would suggest it everyone, fanatics and non-fans, Dutch or non Dutch.
I grew up with the melody of André Hazes, I cried, I laughed, I belted his words into the deep of the night in Amsterdam dives, Groningen "kniepes" and Frisian port bars. Honestly I didn't know much about his life and was looking forward to watching this bio-pic.From a storytelling perspective the film is chaotic and unfocused. The trouble in my humble opinion is that the makers felt the need to make a 'complete' picture while ignoring the main storyline arch which is right front and center and remained undeveloped.André Hazes' self-destruction can be traced back to his father's vicious abuse. Not only he but also his mother and most likely his siblings were severely beaten by his alcoholic father - if we have to trust this movie. It would have been more than unbelievable to see how the father-son storyline relationship would have developed, culminating in the ultimate revenge in the Concertgebouw. I understand this is not the zone to rewrite a movie, but, and this is the situation with many Dutch movies, it misses the mission and is thereby losing a larger audience who might be interested more in the storyline than in the cult status of this folk singer.
