A heist pic, a police procedural, a musical and comedy all rolled into — you won’t be surprised to learn this inventive blend of genres doesn’t come from Hollywood, but instead is finding its way to U.S. theaters via Sweden.
Directed by Ola Simonsson and Johannes Stjärne Nilsson, “The Sound Of Noise” centers on Amadeus Warnebring, a police officer born into a musical family with a long history of famous musicians. Ironically, he hates music, but he finds his life is thrown into chaos when a band of crazy musicians decide to perform a musical apocalypse using the city as their orchestra. Reluctantly, Warnebring embarks on his first musical investigation. “The Sound Of Noise” has played festivals worldwide, and won a handful of awards including the Young Critics Awards at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010.
Now, it’s finally making its way to theaters stateside. Magnolia Pictures will begin rolling out “The Sound Of Noise” on March 9th. But before then, get a taste of all the elements of the film in this two-minute clip which shows you a glimpse of the toe-tapping hijinx that are in store.
