Rated 4 out of 5

“We Are the Best!” (Vi är bäst!) is a 2013 Swedish film directed by Lukas Moodysson. The movie revolves around three teenage girls living in Stockholm in the early 1980s who form a punk rock band despite their lack of musical skills and the disapproval of their peers.

The film is a heartwarming coming-of-age story that beautifully captures the spirit of youth and rebellion. Moodysson skillfully explores themes of friendship, identity, and the power of music to express oneself. The three main characters, Bobo, Klara, and Hedvig, are portrayed with depth and authenticity by the young actresses Mira Barkhammar, Mira Grosin, and Liv LeMoyne, respectively. Their performances are remarkable and convey the complexity and enthusiasm of teenage emotions.

One of the strongest aspects of “We Are the Best!” is its portrayal of the punk subculture. The film captures the energy and rebelliousness of the punk movement, showcasing the girls’ determination to make their voices heard through music. The punk rock soundtrack is excellent and adds a genuine and energetic atmosphere to the film.

Another noteworthy aspect of the movie is its exploration of gender roles and stereotypes. Bobo and Klara challenge societal expectations by embracing their passion for punk music and refusing to conform to traditional gender norms. Hedvig, on the other hand, provides an interesting contrast as a reserved and religious girl who finds acceptance and friendship in the punk scene. The film addresses these themes with sensitivity and without being preachy, adding depth to the story.

“We Are the Best!” is visually appealing, with a raw and authentic aesthetic that reflects the punk era. Moodysson’s direction captures the time period and the youthful energy of the characters, creating a nostalgic and immersive experience for the audience.

Overall, “We Are the Best!” is a delightful and uplifting film that celebrates the power of friendship, self-expression, and the pursuit of one’s passions. With its strong performances, engaging story, and memorable soundtrack, the movie successfully captures the essence of teenage rebellion and the joy of discovering one’s own voice. Whether you’re a fan of punk music or simply appreciate well-crafted coming-of-age stories, this film is definitely worth watching.
