WE ARE THE BEST (MA15+)

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - MOVIE REVIEWS -

If you are born with the right set of ears, you don’t just lis­ten to punk rock. You live it. And if you are lucky enough to fall in with the right set of friends, you play it. Such are the lessons learned by the three young hero­ines of We Are The Best, an in­fec­tiously ex­u­ber­ant cel­e­bra­tion of break­ing the rules by break­ing the sound bar­rier. The story is set in the Swedish city of Stock­holm, where a hap­pily alien­ated trio of 13-year-old girls start their own punk band. Two of them can­not sing or play a note. Nev­er­the­less, a sound – their sound, no one else’s – be­gins to take shape. This is a lovely, lively film about a cer­tain age and state of mind where any­thing still seems pos­si­ble, and any­one not on board with that can go to hell. ½
