Director: Lukas Moodysson
Original Title: Vi är bäst!
Main Cast: Mira Barkhammar, Mira Grosin, Viv LeMoyne
Swedish director Lukas Moodysson is back with a bang with his latest morality tale, We Are The Best!, a terrific feel-good film set in the 1980s. He’s assembled a brilliant cast, especially the leads, who deliver remarkable debut performances. Ignored by their parents, three kids decide to set up a punk band, despite not owning any instruments and being told that ‘punk is dead’. As with his film Together, Moodysson perfectly captures the indulgences, excitement and moral confusion that characterised the early 80s. It is a wonderful picture, unsentimental but incredibly warm – highly recommended if you missed its release earlier in the year.
