No consensus yet.
Again the Finnish title has been badly translated. A more proper translation would be "Girl, you're a Star".
The two lead character's have different cultural and social backgrounds. It woun't be a surprise when I tell you that the boy comes from worse conditions.. The girl dreams of becoming a RnB performer whilst the boy is the brains behind a rap band. The two meet by a simple joke/bet made by his friends. During the movie the two start to know each other better and therefore the inevitable love story unfolds.
I'll admit, I had my disbeliefs against the movie. I'm not a big fan of music related films but still decided to watch it. The film starts slowly and all of the minor sins of Finnish cinema come together. Amateur like acting, sloppy dialogue, minimal production values etc. But although the films start had me almost convinced that nothing special can come out of this, I have to admit I was kinda surprised. Some nice dialogue and scenes will surely deliver some laughs. But don't forget that there's also drama...
In the end, the actors do a decent job. The supporting actors once again steal the show. But that's nothing new nowadays. Most of the characters lack depth so I pressume it's not difficult to bring some warmth to them.
The film is somewhat of a copy of Curtis Hanson's "8 Mile". The male lead actor even resembles Eminem! The film also looks like its distant cousin with an industrial look. Those who liked "8 Mile" might enjoy their time with this one also.
There are no approved quotes yet for this movie.
