Anvil! The Story of Anvil (15)

CANADIAN heavy metal band Anvil are the subject of this 'rockumentary' by filmmaker and fan Sacha Gervasi.

At the age of 14, Canadian school friends Steve 'Lips' Kudlow and Robb Reiner made a pact to rock together forever.

By 1982 all was going to plan - and Anvil's album Metal on Metal was inspiring the likes of Metallica, Anthrax and Guns 'N' Roses.

Anvil were on the cusp of fame and fortune... but it ultimately eluded them.

Fast-forward to now and Lips and Robb, now in their 50s, are still plugging away.

The film follows them through an ill-judged European tour and the trials and tribulations of recording their 13th album, in one last attempt to fulfil boyhood dreams.
