T here has been a trend, recently, for documentaries to take a celebrity phenomenon from the recent past and place it in a new light.
The makers have done a convincing job of placing their story within the cultural context of its own time, while putting it through its paces from a perspective. There are archive news clips, rarely seen home-video footage and interviews with those on the inside though not the group themselveswhich makes this feel intimate and close. It begins with an open audition for the film Tank Girl, inattended by the journalist and broadcaster Miranda Sawyer. Sawyer recalls two other young women in attendance: Geri Halliwell and Victoria Adams.
Three months later, at another audition for a nascent pop group, their lives would change for good. It whizzes through the origin story. That feels quaint in itself. It might have been his biggest mistake. Footage from the house shows that their chemistry and charisma were instant, and they seem largely untameable and practically unmanageable. The Spice Girls are so famous, still, that seeing them in their pre-fame days is fascinating.
They are clearly stars. It is, shall we say, of its time. Any notion of sensitivity was thinner than a 90s eyebrow.
The story then becomes more familiar. They took on Simon Fuller as manager, ed to Virgin and released Wannabe, which went to No 1 in 37 countries and seemed to overwhelm even the team who worked with them. Sexism was fine, as long as it was couched in irony.
The footage of young, giddy female fans — some enthralled by the girl power juggernaut, others more sceptical — is brilliant. Documentaries like this can be have-your-cake-and-eat-it feasts of nostalgia. It is thrilling to remember the rush, but this is also an attempt to reassess the era.
It was acceptable at the timeit was OK at the time. This questions the notion of who made them in the first place, and reshuffles the credit. Times may change, but some things stay exactly the same. Stars from the start … Spice Girls in Rebecca Nicholson. Tue 14 Sep Reuse this content.40d new girl
