What the film lacks in shape it makes up for in integrity and good humour.

Kevin Harley
Total Film

The directors' affecting yet non-sentimental verité approach suits the raw material, spurning 'expert' talking head commentary and letting the band speak (and scream) for themselves.

Little White Lies

No masterpiece, but sensitive and extremely alive to life's amusing idiosyncrasies.

What shines through most strongly ... is both the sense of camaraderie and the personal benefits each band member takes from the experience.

Guardian

This likable documentary about a Finnish punk band whose members are all middle-aged men with learning disabilities opens a window on to another world.

This is London

They are a noisy delight if not exactly The Clash.

National Post

Fun, light-hearted and proof that disability is no barrier to musical success, but it could have benefited from a little more background on the band members.

It's a sketchy and raggedy film, but like punk music, it probably would have been spoiled if it were smoothed out.

Daily Express

Low-budget and ragged The Punk Syndrome has a big heart.

Scotsman

As a piece of rock verite, it's sympathetic, patchy, occasionally discomfiting, but always honest.
