Storyline

The narrative revolves around police officer Amadeus Warnebring, tone-deaf scion of a distinguished musical family, and his attempts to track down a group of six guerilla percussionists whose anarchic public performances are terrorizing the city. The drumming set pieces correspond to an avant-garde score with four hilariously titled movements. Where the short involved the six drummers imaginatively using standard apartment furnishings as their instruments, the feature unleashes them on an unspecified city's civic and cultural institutions. Including an amusing backstory for each of the soberly dressed drummers as well as their nemesis, music-hating investigator Warnebring, the film creates a treat for the eyes and ears from the dull, repetitive sounds of everyday life. Written by Palm Springs Internation Film Festival

Trivia

At the concert the main character's brother is conducting the 2nd movement Haydn's Symphony No 94, the Surprise. It features one loud note - a wake up note - to rouse the possibily sleeping audience, but also as a way of poking fun at the overly pretentious listeners. This fits exactly with one theme of this movie where they are poking fun at the pretentious nature of modern artists who believe everything they make is significant. See more »

You've never heard something like that
3 January 2011 | by stenssonSee all my reviews

"Music for an apartment and six drummers" has reached so called cult status on Youtube. Here is a full length version of the same idea. You can use a hospital patient as percussion, you an surely also use bank note destroyers for the same purpose, not to talk about caterpillars.

True drum anarchy and if you're into this kind of humour, you will find this incredibly funny. The plot is thin, on purpose, and includes a tone deaf police inspector. He's coming after the percussion terrorists.

This Swedish movie really has its chances to be some kind of cult hit abroad. But you must like rhythm.
