Kovasikajuttu; they're electric
15 May 2015 | by Tuukkah-amonSee all my reviews

I hope that the documentarists were not up to make a film exploiting disabled people. Pentti Kurikan Nimipäivät is OK. For good and bad, boys in the band are shown as they are? They can play. They can play as well as a 'normal' punk band could. Not so good, but not so bad. Relationships between band members seem to be as volatile as in any band. Us and them: They have feelings and show it. Also, we 'normals', may have feelings. But no show. They are slow readers and have difficulties to write. If we look at all 'normals' there might be same problems. Nothing new there. Yes, they have sex. Unbelievable?! Some of them have regular sex. Could you accept - some of them have sex more frequently than an average married people. And so on. They and all the other we call disabled are humans. They could live pretty much 'normally' with right support. Good things about this documentary are: it seems honest, disabled are not pitiful, they seem to have a good life. Punk rules OK!
