Imagine this: a group of musicians take a city hostage in an effort to produce “art.” They want to turn the city in some sort of huge musical instrument.
Sounds crazy? That’s because it is, but it also looks like a breath of fresh air in the crypt that can sometimes be the movie industry. Over at Fantastic Fest (it’s fantasmic) it had audience members so enthralled it won the Best Picture award. Yes, this little Swedish film is a musical, but it’s also a musical for people who may not like musicals. That’s because people don’t jump out of no where dancing and singing like they just put their hand on the stove. Nope, it’s because they are evil and crazy people. [via Slashfilm]
