In ‘Amy ’, performers as diverse as
Yasiin Bey and Tony Bennett sing the
praises of the late Amy Winehouse,
and the documentary helps reclaim the
talented, troubled singer as a musician,
rather than a mess.
Critics love it but it has left her
family hurt and angry.
The singer’s father,Mitch Winehouse,
has branded the film inaccurate and
misleading. He claims director Asif
Kapadia depicts the family as doing
too little to help the singer overcome
“They have selectively edited what I
said to suggest that me and my family
were against her getting any kind of
treatment,” Mitch Winehouse told the
Associated Press. “ We took her dozens
of times to detox and rehab over the
Amy Winehouse died at 27 of
accidental alcohol poisoning in July
2011, after a battle with drink and
drugs that played out in front of the
cameras and on tabloid front pages.
Kapadia, the British director of the
acclaimed Formula 1 documentary
Senna, defends his film as a rounded
portrait of the artist, built from more
than 100 inter views with people who
knew Winehouse. Childhood friends
of Winehouse and first manager Nick
Shymansky opened up to him.
So did the singer’s drug-troubled
ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil
and musical collaborators including
producers Mark Ronson and Salaam
Remi, musician Bey (the former
Mos Def ) and Bennett, who calls
Winehouse “the truest jazz singer I
Kapadia said the range of
Winehouse’s famous fans is a sign of
her musical stature and ability to feel
at home in many worlds.
“She knew the dustman and she
knew Mos Def. And she could talk to
Tony Bennett and she could hang out
with Questlove “ she was amazing,”
the director said at the Cannes Film
Festival, where the film had its world
premiere in May. “ The best of every
genre said ‘She’s the real deal’.”
Avoiding the documentary staple
of talking heads, Kapadia layers
audio inter views
images, including home movies and
camera-phone footage of the young
Winehouse shot by her friends.
The approach meant Kapadia could
sometimes sitting in the dark to make
subjects feel more at ease.
Most had never spoken publicly
about Winehouse. Kapadia says many
found the experience cathartic.
Mitch Winehouse, however, argues
that the film omits many of those who
were close to Amy in the final years of
her life, when she had kicked drugs
and tried to reduce her drinking.
“The film portrays Amy as in a
downward spiral from 2008 to 2011,”
he said. “ They don’t want people to
understand that in that last three years
there were some terrible times, but
there were some wonderful times.”
Kapadia said he is sorry the family
feels let down, but insists the film is
“not about them. It’s about her.” He
says he is not trying to blame anyone
for the death of the singer, who also
battled depression and bulimia.
“Life is much more complicated,” he
said. “I have depression in my family.
I have mental illness in my family. It’s
Despite the Winehouse family’s
disapproval, fans will likely cherish
the film for its look at the singer’s
vulnerable private side “ and for its
reminder of her talent.
For someone whose life was so
closely documented, Winehouse has
left a relatively slim musical legacy.
“There were two albums during her
lifetime the jazz-influenced Frank and
the global smash Back to Black, and
one posthumous collection, Lioness:
Hidden Treasures. There may not be
any more,” Universal Music UK boss
David Joseph said. He told Billboard
magazine that he had destroyed her
demo tapes so the unfinished material
could never be released.
While Amy depicts a media-fuelled
personal tragedy, Kapadia said he also
wanted to celebrate an artist and her
“For me that ’s a big part of it, the
artistic journey that she goes through,”
“The diary that she writes that
becomes a poem that becomes lyrics
and the lyrics are fantastic. So much
better than anyone realised.
“There’s a lot of layers in there. ... She
can drop in Thelonious Monk. She can
talk about Nas. She can talk about this,
she can talk about that, and somehow
Winehouse’s songs were deeply
personal as their titles reveal, from
Addicted to Rehab to Love is a Losing
Game. They always sounded poignant;
doubly so now.
Kapadia said since her death, “you
cannot hear those songs the same way
ever again. But you will hear, ‘God, she
