A film about the art of screaming. Meet the screaming choir that travels from Finland to Tokyo with the goal of getting good photographs of their Japanese audience while performing Japanese national anthem. Meet the choir that screams La Marseillaise at the museum of modern art in Paris even though the museum and the embassy of Finland try to prevent them. Meet the choir that makes parody of nationalism and fascism # and can only be led by a total dictator. The Finnish Screaming Male Choir, Mieskuoro Huutajat, dressed in black suits, white shirts, and rubber ties is a unique choir which performs its repertoire by shouting and screaming. Led by the conductor Petri Sirviö, the choir has traveled during 15 years of existence from an idea in a bar table all the way to the front line of modern European performing arts, receiving the same strong reaction everywhere: the audience has been mostly exalted, and sometimes also shocked and bewildered. The appeal of the performance of Huutajat is ... Written by Anonymous

Warning: may be in Finnish w/o subtitles
20 April 2004 | by (Intl Festival) – See all my reviews

I was excited last night to see this film after reading the positive reviews. Well, I don't know what everyone else has seen, by the print shown at my local film festival was in Finnish (I'm guessing), WITHOUT subtitles. The film was about 65% interviews and documentary observation of practices, auditions, concert set up, etc; 25% performances, and 10% interviews in English. So, basically, they spent about 75% of the film talking, and I couldn't understand a lick.

For better or worse, it actually looked like it would be interesting if I could have understood any of it. It was maddening.

If this comes to your town, I would STRONGLY suggest checking with your theater to ask about this issue. There is soooo much dialogue that I cannot recommend seeing this foreign language film unless some kind of accomodation has been made to translate it.

Good luck!
