I couldn't get used to the rawness of the image at first, but then I thought it was a suitable form to tell the story of the street. I guess the director didn't want to barely 'document' these underground bands and artists, so he chose a hybrid form by mixing the documentary and fiction. Even though the authorities don't let underground to raise its voice, the film itself functions as an exhibition space extradiagetically -as we see in that last scene on the seaside, which was very touching.
