I saw it when it was playing in Toronto at the Carlton Cinema. I used to be a huge fan of the Toronto music scene. This movie not only took me back, but also made me appreciate what many artists today are going through. I Highly recommended to anyone interested in joining the music scene in North America as well as anyone who is a fan of good music startups.
Great look into the life of an artist
I really enjoyed the vantage point presented of the struggles and ultimate lifestyle/sacrifices musicians take-on to pursue a dream. It's a unique look at the varying levels of success stemming from artists, whom all seem to grow from a foundation of limited means. Though it explores "The Scene" within the Toronto music landscape, I feel that the film is a great sample size of artists who could be practicing any discipline in any city.
The Scene is an honest and intriguing look into the Toronto music scene; fantastic candid interviews with artists of today and legends of their day. This is a MUST SEE for music fans in general and certainly for anyone interesting in a career in music.
