Storyline

Stjernekigger (2002) gives us an inside look at the rise of Copenhagen band Swan Lee. Starting in 1998, the film shows us how the band tries to get a record deal with established record companies, receiving only rejections. This triggers internal struggles; one member is fired, another threatens to leave. The clue of the film, more than anything, is how instead of giving up on their dream Swan Lee chose to go the less travelled way: Seeking success and artistic freedom through a small record company of their own. At the time of writing this, they have succeeded: Swan Lee is one of the most acclaimed Danish bands, having scored several hits and received several awards. Written by Peter Brandt Nielsen

Intense.
26 February 2004 | by (jotland,Denmark) – See all my reviews

Just saw the movie on TV last night and it really gives an close look at the danish rock n roll buisiness. As a musician you really feel with this band and their tough struggle to get through to the safe betting record executives and their narrow minded ideas of what a good record should sound like.Of course its always easy to bark at the record industry but I really think this movie goes to show that logic and conventionel thinking isn't a very useful when it comes into handeling what music really is - Art! The movie is more than just a documentary about a band without a record deal,it's a universal statement about keeping on going when you know that you got something to offer.And surely swan Lee has a lot!

Great movie 8/10.
