Storyline

Under the loving but firm guidance of an old fan turned director and cultural diplomat and to the surprise of a whole world, the ex-Yugoslavian cult band Laibach becomes the first foreign rock group ever to perform in the fortress state of North Korea. Confronting strict ideology and cultural differences, the band struggles to get their songs through the needle's eye of censorship before they can be unleashed on an audience never before exposed to alternative rock'n'roll. Meanwhile, propaganda loudspeakers are being set up at the border between the two Koreas and a countdown to war is announced. The hills are alive...with the sound of music.

Not bad, but...
8 March 2019 | by Irena_SpaSee all my reviews

I saw it now... As I wrote in this headline, it isn't bad, but there is something confusing in it. Is that the movie about one unusual trip and performance of the Slovenian band or is it about the life in North Korea? However, it is interesting and surprising to see that they were invited to come as a guests and also that Boris(think Boris said that) says "we are the children of Tito's Yugoslavia and now we are orphans". From North Korea's side looking, there is just what is allowed to be known and how their leader shows to foreigners only what he wants to be seen. I guess the true message is "All art is subject to political manipulation", what is the opening quote of the film.
