Hevi reissu (2018)

The screening on Sep 26th at 13:00 is mostly for school groups and the ticket office is not open at Orion at that time.

Of all the things I imagined Heavy Trip would be, “sweet” was not one of the adjectives that would’ve immediately jumped to mind before watching this utterly charming shaggy dog story of a band chasing a dream they never really intended to catch. But here we are, in a post Heavy Trip world, and sweet is the best way to describe this hilarious film that is shockingly appropriate for the whole family […].
Turo is a twenty something metalhead living in rural Finland with a dream. He and his baddies in the band Impaled Rektum just want people to hear that they are the heaviest, most brutal band in the world, but they can’t seem to make it out of the basement. A fit of inspiration after 12 years of cover tunes leads them to write and record a single amazing brain smasher and a chance encounter with the promoter of neighboring Norway’s biggest heavy metal music festival sets their course.

Heavy Trip is a hilarious, loving ode to heavy metal fandom. In all honesty, Heavy Trip could’ve been about anything, the beats for any good underdog sports movie are all in place, but the fact that it was Finnish heavy metal adds an unusual flavor and provides opportunities for comedy that haven’t been explored before, making this a must see.
