Arena: Amy Winehouse - The Day She Came to Dingle

Radio Times
Review by:
David Crawford

First shown a year after her death, this Arena film shines a light on a unique moment in the life of Amy Winehouse. On a December night in 2006 she flew to south-west Ireland to perform for the acclaimed Irish TV music series Other Voices.

The performance is a great distillation of the extent of her talent: she shifts effortlessly between happy, fragile, tough and sad. As a bonus there’s an interview in which she enthuses about her influences and gives a glimpse into her troubled personality.
