Herbert Curiël / NL, 1979 / 99 min.
In Cha-cha, with Herman Brood and punk singer Nina Hagen, Herbert Curiël creates a tempestuous portrait of the Amsterdam pop scene of the late ’70s. Now, twenty years after Herman Brood’s death, a newly restored version of Cha-cha can be enjoyed at a free in open-air screening.
After Herman Brood, frontman of The Wild Romance, and punk singers Nina Hagen and Lene Lovich have robbed a bank, Herman decides he’d rather return to sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. In the meantime, a jealous Nina puts together her own band, made up of members of Herman’s group, and the pair marry in pop temple Paradiso.
