Very, very 80s
20 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Heavy-handed educational film about the life of one of the (supposedly) worst teens in Stockholm in the mid 80s. Paolo and his friends rob and beat people up for seemingly no reason other than the rush. As the minuscule plot unfolds across many a Stockholm night we get to see a metric ton of bad hair and more laughable 80s fashion than is good for you. A lot of the acting is downright horrible, the fights are over choreographed and stylized, glorified even, and the ultimate message is laughably heavy-handed. In spite of all of this, the film is almost watchable as a document of a bygone era, and as a view in to the burgeoning hip-hop scene in Stockholm at the time.
