In this delightful Swedish musical crime comedy, a band of outlaw musicians cause havoc with bizarre guerrilla gigs. After failing to prevent their electronica hospital escapade and hip-hop bank heist, the police are determined to silence the band’s most ambitious sonic assault yet as they orchestrate the entire city.
The narrative revolves around police officer Amadeus Warnebring, tone-deaf scion of a distinguished musical family, and his attempts to track down a group of six guerilla percussionists whose anarchic public performances are terrorising the city. The drumming set pieces correspond to an avant-garde score with four hilariously titled movements. Where the short involved the six drummers imaginatively using standard apartment furnishings as their instruments, the feature unleashes them on an unspecified city’s civic and cultural institutions. Including an amusing backstory for each of the soberly dressed drummers as well as their nemesis, music-hating investigator Warnebring, the film creates a treat for the eyes and ears from the dull, repetitive sounds of everyday life.
