Toronto heavy metal veteran’s Anvil are the subject of this rise, fall, and the attempt  to stay relevant tale told in documentary form.  Featuring guest appearances by some of rocks biggest names and some archival footage director Sacha Gervasi tells the story of Anvils rise to semi fame in the 80’s, then blends current footage showing an ageing band not willing to let go of their dreams.


A failed European tour and mounting family pressures take their toll on relationships in this truly inspiring story of Robb Reiner, and Steve “Lips” Kudlow as they struggle to combine family and band life.  The recording of Anvils thirteenth album leads to more issues from the recording phase to the problems with marketing a hair band of balding fifty somethings.


Whether your a heavy metal fan or not, Anvil! The Story of Anvil is a great piece of Canadian work and worth an hour and a half of your life.
