Fucking Stockholm! In his new film, based on a comic by his wife Coco, Lukas Moodysson (“Fucking Åmål”) tells the tale of three teenage girls who roam the streets of Stockholm in the early 80s. Bobo and Klara are twelve years old, and although they cannot play any musical instruments they want to be taken seriously as musicians. This is why they choose to start a punk band rather than a “girl group”. They are joined by Hedvig, who impressed them with her skills on the classical guitar.After a number of rehearsals, their music teacher actually encourages them to perform a “Christmas concert”. “We Are the Best” takes a vociferous, witty and detailed look back at a time when the everyday life of young “rebel girls” was steeped in feminist and political slogans.
