Storyline

The movie tells what happens when sexual revolution arrives into a conservative and religious small town in Northern Finland, as seen by the 13-year-old Star Boy singers who are forced to observe their parents' sexual liberation and its consequences at too close range. It's a powerful story of two families of architects being torn apart by crumbling of moral conceptions and the parents' endless need for love and freedom. After a fatal toga party, no one and nothing is the same, and the boys' confusion erupts violently - Even though Star Boys deals with heavy themes, it is ultimately a warm and positive survival story that portrays the persistence and capacity of children to get over even most difficult experiences in life. Written by Harry Potter, Yorkshire, UK

Almost authentic
9 September 2017 | by jannunenSee all my reviews

The movie was a nice (or not so) of its period of time.

The actors had tried to learn the dialect of Oulu, succeeding at places, but at places falling shirt. As a person brought up in Oulu, some parts felt a bit wrong because the dialect kicked in and suddenly dropped out.

As I lived in Oulu at that time, it was really nice to see the places in the movie and trying to connect them in my head into the map of Oulu.

I was left with a feeling that the movie might have worked better as a series. The story could have been told better, it felt that there was too much stuff crammed into a movie.
