Director Lukas Moodysson comes bursting out of a decade-long bad mood with a film that glows with the kind of warm, spunky ebullience that made Show Me Love and Together such a joy.

Bobo and Klara are friends in early 80s Stockholm, two tomboyish 13 year-olds who disdain their permed blonde classmates and form a punk group in order to vent fury over the stupidity of PE lessons. In true punk style neither of them can play for toffee, and they decide to add a bit of musical nous by recruiting shy classical guitarist Hedvig (“we can influence her away from God”).

Director Lukas Moodysson comes bursting out of a decade-long bad mood with a film that glows with the kind of warm, spunky ebullience that made Show Me Love and Together such a joy. Adapted from a graphic novel by his wife Coco, We Are the Best! is a hymn to teenage friendships and plotting your own path.

Dir. Lukas Moodysson / Sweden 2013 / 102 min
