Good documentary of legendary Swedish punk band
11 January 2003 | by stefan-144See all my reviews

Of course the title of the movie is an irony, reminding of 'Abba, the Movie', a very different cup of tea. The legendary Swedish punk rock group Ebba Gron took its name from a codeword used by Swedish police when moving in to arrest a German terrorist. Yes, they wanted to provoke.

So does the movie, with rude behind the scenes and close shots of the chaotic life, which was this wild band on tour. A climax of sorts, is when the band's lead singer Joachim Thastrom plays a church organ, singing 'Hang God'.

I'm not sure about how good this movie would have been, with a lesser band than the one followed, and a less charismatic leading role than its singer, but there it is. A good thing that the band got documented this ambitiously, at the height of their artistic frenzy.
