Truly amazing
27 September 2006 | by Aarseth1721See all my reviews

Not often are we disposed of a film so warm and true like this film. It's about a band with slightly mental handicaps who gets quite popular, and we get to see how this inflicts the band and their members. It's been a while since I've seen such a honest film that don't tell nothing but the truth. There are a lot of moments in this film that really makes you smile, and it's one of those lovely feel-good films that I think everyone should see in these times of violence and aggression.

Also, one of the great things about this film is that we get to see the real picture of what really is going on in their lives. That typical Hollywood angling of everything is fortunately dropped. It makes the film contain the truth and genuinity to it. Without the fact that it truly is genuine, I don't think it would have been such an important film, because it really is an important film.

As earlier mentioned, the people in this band in which this film is about, have mental handicaps of different kinds. Where many other films could have failed in showing the negative side of it, this film just shows how marvelous these people can be, and for that matter, I think it is an important film just for the sake of the in-alienation of those who are a bit "different" than us others.
