Storyline

Year 1977. Punk and new wave rock'n roll has arrived to remote Finland and a bleak small town Oulu where increasingly odd-looking youths began to appear in the street with a message. Their rebellion speaks to Välde (17). Välde dreams of joining a rock band and becoming famous. He wants to get drunk for the first time, and to win the love of Pike, the most beautiful girl in the class. When Pike wins the Miss Blue Jeans contest organized by the country's leading (and only) pop music magazine Suosikki and takes as her boyfriend the bourgeois Henri Hakala, Välde puts all his eggs in one basket. He abandons his former self and begins purposefully constructing a new persona for himself. But everything doesn't go as Välde wanted. Written by lament

Miss Blue Jeans: Meaningless Moments in Life
16 June 2019 | by neonadventureSee all my reviews

At first when I watched it, I thought it was ok and it was only the soundtrack. But, then I start thinking about the overall movie itself and how slow paced and how many of these scenes are useless to even watch since the story could've been more faster. This review is probably never going to be read so I decided to say that this movie isn't that good at all and it's an interesting love story but it serves no purpose in my opinion and there seems to be bad acting.

Interesting is that the main character is in love with the girl. Although, he never gets her at the end and that's what makes the story good. Although, the acting and many of the scenes of the band just playing music is kind of a filler and these scenes could've been entirely cut from the real movie itself. The movie is only worth a duration of a short movie. It's a film that can fool many people who believe that this film is good but it's still meaningless and I'm not a fan of high school or rock band movies. This doesn't mean that I'm bias since I do like "Grease" and I also like a few rock songs that isn't from the band Queen.

With a few smart cinematography moves and a few ranges of freedom from the rock music are only the good stuff to talk about this movie. Is it worth watching? No. I watched this film on the plane and never seen it on DVD nor Blu-Ray. It's a type of film you would see on YouTube with a 144p and a dark halo ring around it. Don't forget to mention the high pitched chipmunk talk.

This is a film that will be never see the light ever again and will be thrown under the bus of hell forever. This film is not worth watching with it's limited amount of emotions put into these scenes and it will make you fall asleep.
