It is no secret I am a bit of a fangirl when it comes to One Direction so of course I went to watch the new “One Direction: Where We Are – The Concert Film” this Saturday.
As I have talked about before I went to both of their WWAT concerts in Denmark this summer and I had the time of my life (I am not even kidding). They mean a lot to me and their music just makes me happy. I was so excited to see the concert filmed in the San Siro Stadium in Milan, Italy, as I knew it was one of the biggest venues on the tour. They played to more than 80.000 people that night. Insane.
The movie begins with about 15-20 minutes of interview with the boys very casual and laid back. They talk about everything from the tour, proudest moments, their underwear, Liam’s kidney and the special bond between the fans and themselves. It’s cute, funny and very honest. It’s just them in a nutshell.
After the interview the concert begins and oh my god — I had chills from the moment they walked out on stage till the end credits had rolled over the screen. It’s insanely well made and the music sounds amazing. Their voices are incredible and their stage presence is unlike anyone I have ever seen live.
My absolute favorite part of the concert is during the song Right Now. It’s a very heartfelt and slow song but what makes the moment amazing is the fan project. It’s unbelievable what they pulled off and the looks on the boys’s faces are priceless. If you are on the fence about 1D that’s fine but that scene is something you just have to watch.
The bond between the boys and the fans is so special which the movie captures so well. It shows the interaction between the boys and the crowd, their little chats, the many signs, tears, hugs and thousands of happy faces. There is so much love and appreciation both ways and there’s no doubt in my mind they mean it when they say ‘we love you’.
Hearing the crowd sing a long to every song was undeniably one of the most amazing moments during the concert especially in You & I, Story Of My Life and Little Things, but something that makes the 1D concerts so unique is the boys in general. I mean Louis even takes his microphone with him on the toilet just to annoy Liam who’s left alone in front of 80.000 thousand people while everyone runs of to the toilet. Such idiots but it gives the show personality and makes it special.
All in all the film is is amazing from start to finish and it’s definitely something I’ll recommend to ANYONE. It’s funny, cute and you will feel very good after spending 1,5 hour watching those five lovely guys and 80.000 people having the time of their lives. I am even making my mom watch it when I get it on DVD (she’s a little fangirl too she just doesn’t want to admit it)
