Although G is a lame film it has great music. I think more of it as a music film than a generation film. My favourite scenes are of course the live performances with Reeperbahn (as Nürnberg 47, an unsympathetic and decadent nationalist band) and Nasa who at the time still made wonderfully simple electronic pop with Swedish lyrics.
Among the best scenes are the settings in concert hall of Kolingsborg (as the Club G, run by the sleazy character wonderfully played by Magnus Uggla) where I've been many times since which gives the film an extra point for nostalgia. The place is about to be torn down i the rebuilding of Slussen in Stockholm that is about to begin within short.
Another memorable scene is the live show with Nürnberg 47 at Ljusdals Folkets Park and the backstage scene where Reeperbahn plays Venus In Furs while the members are occupied with the groupies, a key-scene in which Sebastian decides this is not the life for him.
Last but no least the performances of Barn with Niels Jensen are great in their New Romantic / Punk crossover style. The soundtrack of course is a given part of any good 80's record collection!
