Where's the festival-feeling?
30 December 2001 | by dimebag_andersSee all my reviews

I can sum this movie up pretty good in one sentence: "Overall bad acting, extremly dull story and absolutely no festival precence." The only reason I would want to see a movie about a festival is the memories and stuff you have yourself (you can probably figure out that a movie called "Festival" starring Ebba Hultkvist isn't exactly going to be Dr Strangelove, so I saw it basically because I like festivals). It would have been better if someone who had been to a festival had something to do with the film, it would probably make it a bit realistic. Instead, we're stuck with this s**t. Nope, this movie is not worth it's cool name, that's why me and my friends will record the sequel, "Festival 2" in Roskilde this summer. It will beat this one by far, at least if your into real festivals. Rock on.´

"Festival" get's 2 out of 10
