  • Originaltitel: Hevi reissu
  • Svensk Premiär

Vild, sprakande och prisvinnande komedi om ett brokigt gäng beskedliga unga män på den finska landsbygden som drömmer om att slå stort med sitt genområa metalband.

Musiken är ljuspunkten i den introverta sångaren Turos liv, men trots tolv års repande i en slakterilokal har hans band ännu inte spelat sitt första gig, vilket föranleder en hel del hån från omgivningen. När så en promotor för en stor norsk metalfestival råkar korsa deras väg ser de en möjlighet, och kastar sig ut i ett lika galet som skruvat äventyr. Jukka Vidgrens och Juuso Laatios Heavy Trip är en färgstark och kärleksfull drift med den finska metalvärlden och dess ibland lätt osmakliga attribut, som lyckas i sin ansats att tilltala många fler än de redan metalfrälsta.

- Tobias Åkesson

Regissörer

Jukka Vidgren
Vidgren started his work as commercial director in early 2000. Since then he has been working with music videos and short films. Notable short films have been Dr. Professor’s Thesis of Evil which was selected for several international festivals and was part of the opening night at LA short fest. Heavy Trip is Vidgren’s debute feature film.

Juuso Laatio
Laatio has worked on commercials and music videos for almost fifteen years. He is known for creating visually stunning acclaimed artwork and visuals, in both video and photography. A lover of music, beautiful pictures and ridiculous comedies, he finally got to combine his passions in his debut feature film Heavy Trip.

There are mainly two reasons why we wanted to do this film. The first one is that we think that guys like the band in Heavy Trip deserve their story to be told. These small town guys with a huge passion for a music genre, that most people wouldn’t consider no more than a broken heavy machinery, is nothing short of inspirational. Guys, who in spite of probably never getting rich or famous (and doubtfully never getting much girls), play THIS music. Just for the love of it. The music culture of our time is so fame-orientated, and so much about making money and looking good that these guys just might be the last fortress of genuine, uncompromising artistry. The other reason is that we think that there are too few films that make the audience laugh made in Finland. And by this we mean to really laugh. Not just have a smirk for some intelligent insightful notion about something “meaningful”. But to laugh your ass off. We wanted to do a film that doesn’t rationalize humor but embraces the idea of someone getting hurled in the face with puke.
