Every Tuesday 25 tattooed middle aged men take a break from their everyday lives to meet and drink beer, tell bad jokes and sing dirty rock songs. In their female-free zone, behind closed doors they spend time with their buddies and let their steam out. The brotherhood means a lot to them. They have even promised to sing in each others funerals - a joke of course, it has never occurred to them that it's going to happen. But one day, when one of them confides he's got little time left to live, they realize that life is fragile and that none of them are immortal. This summer they have landed their biggest and most absurd gig ever - warming up for the legendary hard rock band Black Sabbath. They just hope they will all live long enough to experience it together.Written by
I only give 10710 to films which are really great, or to films that touches me deeply on an emotional level. This did.
I knew the film had good critics, but it came as a shock how heartfelt a rollercoaster of emotions this deocumentary is.
First of all it's funny. Some Norwegian well known personalities from TV, radio, music and culture are mixed with 15 others in a male choir, called "The Male Choir", started by the vocalist of DumDum Boys, Prepple Houmb and radioperonality Geir Schau. Every tuesday they meet and rehearse and drink beer.
now they have got their biggest concert job ever, thanks to festival general Dvein Bjørge, warming up for Black Sabbath with Ozzy Osbourne.
But weeks before they get to know that their choir conductor just have weeks to live, due to cancer. The race is on. Will he experience the big event?
Sometimes very funny, other times very sad, this movie will not let you off.
The emotional rollercoaster is a gem of a film, and an experience you'll never forget.
