Two boys grow up together in town of Pajala at 60’s. United by rock’n’roll music.
Walking into this movie just more or less accidentally, I went out 105 minutes later with another candidate to my “all times’ best list”. Formerly employed in movie-jobs myself, I can only say that this is a masterpiece. May be the critics about incoherent use of local dialects is right – I saw it translated anyway. But, if this is a misfit, I must say, there are hardly other minor misfits. The movie is not boring for a second, and the tough scenes are not voyeuristic like usual, but describing the characters and the environment – yes, in a tough way. Highly to be recommended to everyone who was not raised in an accomodance of McD’ and Cadillacs. Very close to live, and wonderfully set into scene. Pure live, the hard way, yes, but full of real love. A must for cineastics.
