Filmmakers Ola Simonsson and Johannes Stjärne Nilsson and their engaging cast pull off the feat with no strain and a surprising amount of heart.
"Sound of Noise" is like no heist movie you've ever seen; these bandits want only to transform a city into a canvas for their special brand of aural art.
The energy flags whenever the vandals are at rest, and a romantic subplot feels like an afterthought. But Nilsson is a delight, and the filmmakers' own creativity transforms shock into awe.
Sound of Noise is outside the box, original and inventive. It's also hilarious, and extremely entertaining. The film is one of SFIFF's highlights.
It never achieves much coherence when it tries for more than slapstick comedy.
I've seen a lot of detective stories, but never one about a detective trying to track down a bunch of performance artists who are playing illegal music.
The premise is so delightfully strange, it almost sounds like an Etgar Keret short story, or maybe even a playful exercise by Gabriel García Márquez.
The film's joke is kind of one-note, although it maintains an exhilarating beat throughout. If Sound of Noise is the rhythm of the new city symphony, play on.
While this rollicking comedy about musical terrorists cleverly satirizes movie conventions of cops and capers, the creative crimes look and sound wonderfully unique.
Sound of Noise provides plenty of excitement and rumble, executed with a considerable screen flair that manages oddity and a crooked sense of liberation with stunning flexibility.
