With Meky, we tried to make a film portrait that has not been made before. Without sentiment and pathos but with humor. Flashing, energetic and subversive in the picture. With loud music and, above all and if possible, honest, emotional, human.
We’ve followed Meky for almost a year, from his bedroom, through a packed concert in London, to the backstage of a sold-out O2 Arena in Prague. We had access to previously unseen personal archives and also to unknown versions of Meky’s later hits.
And all this time, we have been searching for who this musician is, whose songs have been on the radio for over 40 years and whose songs everyone knows. But nobody seems to know him – “He’s such a nice, easy-going guy”. So we set off to follow the footsteps of this “Englishman from Bratislava” who has made several remarkable decisions and sacrifices in his life and came from an unknown Gunduličova Street to the famous London Abbey Road Studios, the most famous recording studio.
