For all their moodiness and irascibility, the girls come across as warm and believable, and there are funny moments when they take to the streets to raise money for a new guitar.

The music here is really just a Macguffin, a way into Moodyson's real subject: the complex and often unequal dynamics of adolescent friendships.

Watching We Are the Best! is a genuinely positive experience, one that leaves you smiling inside and out even days later as you think back not only on scenes from the film but also to memories of your own life.

The beautifully authentic performances by the three bandmates capture that brief life moment when nearly everything can feel like a scary, joyous act of rebellion.

A pallid and terminally cutesy movie that succeeds by stoking blandly happy feelings.

It's a film for seeing familiar things being done well, not for being surprised or challenged.

The pic has a blast poking fun at society, and in a crude way siding with the rebels.

The three girls are full of life. They have a lot of fun just being kids. They are excited about their potential and their possibilities. This movie is a tribute to the spirit and optimism of youth.

We Are The Best! is a delightful film about the friendship between its three young protagonists, set to an amusing and convincing punk music backdrop. I spent half the running time with a grin on my face.

But this is not a movie about kids learning the value of intense practice and dedication. Instead, it's a movie about the major and minor tumults of growing up.

We Are the Best! is as unique as chips and chocolate. It's also as universal as cosmic pubescence.

A proudly feminist middle finger to conformity, and a celebration of youthful rebellion.

"We Are the Best!" captures the chaos of youth with a funny and profane energy.

In its evocation of the early '80s Stockholm middle-school girl punk rock scene, "We Are The Best!" could hardly be more specific. But in its depiction of the joys and sorrows of adolescence, it could hardly be more universal.

Moodysson has brought these non-conformists delightfully, sensitively to life with design and cinematography reflecting the recently departed 70's.

The young actresses are just flawless and I think Lukas Moodysson really tells this story well.

Full of adolescent energy -- vibrant, untethered, and kind of bonkers -- the new movie from Swedish director Lukas Moodysson is a gentler version of childhood than he's recently favoured.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

The performances of all three young actors are superb, soulful, honest and full of joy. Their dialogue is often ridiculously funny and there's no sense of manufactured drama.
