Plot Summary
This documentary focuses on German model, singer and actress Nico, who is most renowned for her associations with artist Andy Warhol and revered 1960s rock act the Velvet Underground. Nico gained attention for her icy Teutonic looks and, later, her unusual voice, but was plagued by depression and drug addiction. The performer is presented in film clips and photos, and the film also features interviews with associates such as singer-songwriter Jackson Browne and musical collaborator John Cale.
