Storyline

In 2007 the legendary American duo White Stripes toured Canada. Besides playing the usual venues they challenged themselves and played in buses, cafés and for Indian tribal elders. Music video director Emmett Malloy followed the band and managed to capture both the special tour, extraordinary concert versions of the band's minimalist, raw, blues-inspired rock songs and the special relationship between the extroverted Jack White and the introspective Meg White - a formerly married couple who for a long time claimed to be siblings. The film makes striking use of the band's concert colors: red, white and black. Written by Göteborg International Film Festival

Simply amazing! =D
7 November 2009 | by BestMovieEvarSee all my reviews

Im a big white stripes fan and sat through this entire film with a huge smile on my face! It was simply an amazing experience, the moments captured in this documentary are priceless along with the the many unusual and interesting setting and venues that they played! Powerful live versions of the songs, great moments with Jack and Meg that make you love them both even more! I could hardly sit still during this film, due to the many fantastic songs being played in versions that make them even better than the recorded ones. The camera work, the editing, the use of black and white and other filters, all made this an absolute joy to watch. Jack & Meg, you are such cool cats! =) I walked away from this film feeling inspired and uplifted!
