Yesterday…Suddenly…Imagine…that you are a musician who’s having a hard time and suddenly no-one remembers the Beatles.
A fraud ?
This musical romance is about plagiarism….so, how Danny Boyle, the director of « Slumdog Millionnaire «, who does films about social justice, and Richard Curtis the screenwriter and producer of this movie (screenwriter of « Four Weddings and a Funeral », « Notting Hill », « Love actually », “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again”) and director of« Love Actually », “Good Morning England” and « About Time » – great movie currently on Netflix) have missed the eponymous comic written by David Blot in 2011 « Yesterday » ? How could they not know while the actress has the same name as the heroin of the comic (Eli has been changed into Ellie…) ?
Yesterday, this feel good movie about how hard it is to exist with its own music with the funny Himesh Patel singing all the Beatles tunes, has failed by raising a doubt on the likely injustice done to David Blot …He put his comic it freely on line.
Let’s hope light and justice will soon be shed on this case…
