The Leningrad Cowboys, a fictional Russian rock band, and their manager, travel to America seeking fame and fortune. As they cross the country, trying to get to a wedding in Mexico, they are followed by the village idiot, who wishes to join the band. —vukovarfilmfestival
Leningrad Cowboys Go America is Finland meets the Blues Brothers with a bit of Monty Python thrown in. Very entertaining.My husband and I watched this movie last night as it was St. Urho's Day and we wanted to see something from Finland. Well, 90% of the movie is in English rather than Finnish, but that didn't matter. Basically, this crazy band of brothers finds that their music is not marketable in Finland, so they go to America. It's not really marketable their either, so they are sent to Mexico and play at a bunch of bars on the way there. They switch from oldies rock to country to modern rock along the way. Finally in Mexico they are accepted for music close to what they were playing in the first place. A bad manager, dead guitarist, outcast brother, and long lost cousin add to the fun. I would recommend it to anyone who likes bizarre comedy.
