Who out there likes bank robbers who sing and dance? If you answered yes, then you’re in luck, and the new Swedish film “Sound of Noise” might be right up your alley. It’s hard to explain, but there is a band of rogue musicians who rob banks and take over operating rooms while staging elaborate musical numbers as some sort of public performance art. I can’t escape the thought that this is something that collective Swedish hardcore band Refused would have attempted to stage at some point. The whole scenario has that gleefully anarchistic bent that they were so fond of.
Here is a synopsis:
Police officer Amadeus Warnebring was born into a musical family with a long history of famous musicians. Ironically, he hates music. His life is thrown into chaos when a band of crazy musicians decides to perform a musical apocalypse using the city as their orchestra… Reluctantly, Warnebring embarks on his first musical investigation…
“Sound of Noise” won the best picture award at Fantastic Fest last year, and from the looks of this trailer, is a total blast. There is a definite possibility that this movie could become too cute and too precious, I’m sure there is a message about making every day a work of art or a celebration, but there is a great deal of potential, too. At least we know one thing for sure, the musical numbers have to be better than that nonsense in “Spider-Man 3”.
“Sound of Noise” opens March 9 and is distributed by Magnolia Pictures. You can watch the trailer for yourself below.
