Ten years after the death of the British singer who died at the age of 27, family and friends say the time has come to stop looking at her through the prism of the struggle with addiction and destructive relationships.
Amy Winehouse said in one of her songs: ‘They tried to make me go to rehab. But I said no, no, no ', and consequently died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011.
Winehouse’s parents collaborated with the BBC on a documentary to be aired on the anniversary of her death on Friday 23 July, which, according to her father Mitchell, gives a ‘bigger picture of Amy’.
'You think you know my daughter - drugs, addictions, destructive relationships - but there's a lot more to it,' says her mother.
The film tries to challenge accusations that the family took advantage of her success and didn’t do everything to get her out of the addiction.
NME music magazine called the documentary ‘touching’, a dedication to a daughter, a friend, and a huge talent ’.
But the Financial Times is skeptical and writes that Winehouse’s parents, especially Father Mitch, were ‘ahead and at the center of her career’.
