A story about punk and music
17 September 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The plot is simple; Abra lives in a small town not to far away of Gothenburg. She has a punk band and her dream is to release a single and become famous. The band splits up after a member of the bands boyfriend abuses Abra. On a concert in her village she meets Millan a stage re-arranger (roddare). After an unfortunate event she escapes with the band and lies about that she really lives in Gothenburg. But in some miraculous way they believe in her. She lies about some other things and gets to live with Millan. They start a band together and their goal is to release a single before Christmas. The year is 1984 The movie has a great soundtrack with old Punk songs. And the camera shots are amazing. One thing that I really hated about the movie was that the movie is as Swedish as a Swedish movie can be.

When something is supposed to be sexy and in sex scenes we always see one of the woman's breast and the movie has a sugar sweet ending Malmros has done a great movie but a bit to Swedish and a too simple plot.
