This is a masterpiece of a film that anyone that loved the music and the brothers, will not want to miss this doco, but may I add for any emerging musicians this can only add value to hear the story of the songwriters. Brilliant! Now have to get my disco albums out and get some Saturday night fever back into my life.

5 STARS The Masters of Music and Harmony are the Bee Gees.
