30 November 2018. For the second movie night, tíc’s cineastes went royal and watched “Bohemian Rhapsody”, the movie about the British rock band “Queen” and their extravagant and flamboyant lead singer Freddie Mercury.

“Bohemian Rhapsody”, named after one of the most famous songs by “Queen”, follows the band’s history from their origins to their celebrated Live Aid performance at Wembley Stadium in 1985. Mainly, the movie focusses on the turbulent biography of Farrokh Bulsara, better known under the name he gave himself later: Freddie Mercury.

The impressive and moving movie portrays Freddie Mercury as a self-confident, but vulnerable and admired genius who made “Queen” into one of the most influential bands in music history while his airs and graces could be challenging for the people surrounding him.

Although the movie is sometimes rather loose when it comes to historic accuracy, “Bohemian Rhapsody” received overall positive reviews and could also fill the “Queen” fans of our group with enthusiasm and some of their eyes with tears. Particularly the movies’ casting was praised by our own tíc jury over the traditional post-movie drink. Moreover, the biographical movie motivated us to share and discuss our biographical and personal connections with “Queen” and their music. Hence, it was a great evening to learn more about “Queen” and tíc’s members.
