Storyline

In early-80s' Stockholm, Bobo, an ordinary thirteen-year-old schoolgirl who lives with her divorced mother, takes inspiration from bands like KSMB and Ebba Grön, refusing to accept what others say about Punk being dead. Sharing the same taste in music with her classmate, Klara, and with the help of the talented but introverted eighth-grader, Hedvig, the girls decide to put a band together, getting their hands on musical instruments for the very first time. But, surprisingly, what started as a joke, will soon become a reality--and with a song already in their hands--this aspiring Punk band fuelled by youthful rebellion, will aim for the stars without any concern about what others say, simply because THEY ARE THE BEST.

good friendship movie
25 August 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

It's 1982 Stockholm. Bobo and Klara are outcast 13 year old girls. Bobo lives with her single mom. Klara is angry, political and rebellious. They want to play punk despite people telling them that punk is dead. The only problem is that they don't know how to play music. They befriend shy religious Hedvig who teaches them how to play music. The girls' friendships go through a haircut, some boy troubles and band disputes. In the end, they get a gig and cause a minor riot.

The puppy punk is cute but kinda meaningless. Sometimes they are more brats than rebels. I guess rebelling against gym class is important when you're that young. It doesn't dig that deep. The girls' friendship is the more compelling thing in this movie. It's best when the girls deal with the ups and downs of their relationship. The characters are well-drawn and the girls are fair actors.
