On the day 'his royal badness' left planet earth, prior to Wicked Jazz Sounds' Purple Party, we are showing the Prince film 'Under The Cherry Moon' from 1986, in which Prince plays a pianist on the hunt for women in the French Riviera. The black and white film has a classic retro vibe and is directed by Prince himself. The soundtrack is the album 'Parade' with the hit single 'Kiss', NME's album of the year that year.
Scheming to get rich quick, Christopher (Prince) and his friend Tricky travel to the French Riviera. But Christopher's plans go awry when he falls madly in love with a beautiful, spoiled heiress whose parents plot to keep them apart. The film was a critical and commercial failure, winning five Razzies, including Worst Picture. In this day and age it became a nice 80's cult film however!
