Anvil! The Story of Anvil

Director: Sacha Gervasi
Cast:

Anvil, a Canadian metal band, had their brief moment of fame in the early 80s. While some of their contemporaries became household names, Anvil sank into oblivion. We catch up with the band in 2006 when they play to empty rooms across Europe. The two original members, now in their 50s, work dead-end jobs but continue to dream about rock stardom. This excellent documentary combines hilarious comedy about a real life Spinal Tap with deeply moving depiction of aging, friendship and determination.
