    remarkable, and so cute! This is actually one of the best "a place and it's people" things I have ever seen.

    No, don't get me wrong: I can see perfectly well what you think you're doing, because I'm not an idiot. However I Think You'll Find that "juxtaposition" - that is what you're going for here, yes? - is when two things are placed side by side to create a new meaning, or shed meaning on the things being presented. This film doesn't contrast the good people of Wacken with the wack people of the Wacken Festival, so much as linger for an hour on the moderately-charming mundanity of Wacken, and then say, "also, there is a concert here". The film dwells for an eternity on these perfectly fine and happily uninteresting people, teasing the Festival as the thing that will provide context for the whole thing... but then there's a bit of yelling and amusing drunkenness, and things return to normal. There's "charmed by the simple honest ways of uncomplicated folk", and then there's "shaggy dog story with no punchline". The fellow singing in the rubbish bin, however, was brilliant.

    Hauska elokuva pienen maalaiskylän arjesta, joka on tylsääkin tylsempi paitsi kerran vuodessa kun lauma metallipäivä valtaa kylän. Maalaiset ovat leppoisia, vähän kuten metallipäätkin.

    Lite "Plötsligt i Vinslöv" känsla på filmen om byn Wacken. En helg om året fylls byn dock med drygt 60000 heavy metalfans...

    everybody knows the Wacken Open Air Festival that happens once a year in a small town in northern germany. this film is not about the festival itself, but about the villagers of the town wacken itself. a heartwarming, funny movie!
