Movie about great music & broken friendship
21 April 2014 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The Swedish House Mafia broke up, no need to sugarcoat it and this film certainly doesn't do that. The movie gives insight in how 3 individuals with different backgrounds got together to create music, and how it evolved from that point, with 'Don't you worry child' as their high-point and last creation. Of course the movie is filled with great images of performances and I know of no other music documentary/film that delivered the party-feeling so well. A few bits are repeated from the previous documentary (Take One), but the main-theme 'one last tour' makes it very different.

I have been to one of the Last Tour performances, and I've been on-stage next to the DJs as part of press-work I did at festivals. The Swedish House Mafia have always been different compared to other DJs of the new generation. They party off-stage but are fully focused on delivering a unique experience for the crowd when behind the turn-tables. In the film this is captured in a great way, while showing the different styles that Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello have. This is not only applicable to the music, but also personal lives and role in the Swedish House Mafia collaboration. Steve Angello is the swagger, individualistic character, Sebastian Ingrosso the most stable, funny guy and Axwell forms the heart and glue of the group. A lot of scenes make it obvious why the Swedish House Mafia couldn't stick and why luxury hotels, private jets and nice cars won't bend a negative attitude.

Sadness comes to mind when you need to capture the one and a half hour in a word, however it's something of a frustrating, beautiful sadness.
