A girl is caught between the life that took her brother and her own inability to strike out on her own. In her grief, she finds solace in the dark music of Black Metal and dreams of becoming a rock star.
Turo (25) is trying to overcome his fears by leading the most unknown heavy metal band in Finland, Impaled Rektum, to the hottest metal festival of Norway. The journey includes heavy metal, grave robbing, Viking heaven and an armed conflict between Finland and Norway.
I am a (Finnish) metal head so I had some expectations when I bought the ticket. At least the subject was close to my heart. Finnish comedies in general are broadly cringe-worthy and I have not paid for a movie ticket to see a Finnish flick maybe ever before.
It has many funny moments for a regular Joe, but definitely you are going to be able to pick up much more from this if you are familiar with the metal scene. Subtle references to Finnish artists here and there put constantly a smile on my face.
There are a few interesting characters, and one absolutely hilarious one.
Some scenes were completely not funny and unnecessary for the story to be interesting. Still the good scenes and lovable characters were capable of making me laugh numerous times, so the overall feeling afterwards was very good.
