Not perfect, but not awful, either!
27 September 2015 | by tord-1See all my reviews

The story about two brothers, pure metal-heads, and their mother, who happens to be the local priest, is a bit uneven, but there a lot of individual scenes that are great, but the whole is far from perfect.

The boys live in a flat owned by the local outlet store, and when the new owner changes the jobs they are supposed to do in the shop, they walk out and move in with their mom, and things start to become more, and more, chaotic.

A lot of good actors, even internationally acclaimed actors, but a at times feeble script the whole isn't as good as the parts.

Not bad, with quite a few good one-liners, and not a film you'll easily forget, due to its unusual setting, but proves, again, that a weak script will never make a good movie!
