43rd International Film Festival Rotterdam
22 January – 2 February 2014

International Film Festival Rotterdam 2014 closes Saturday 1 February with the Dutch premiere of We Are The Best!, the latest film by Swedish director Lukas Moodysson (Fucking Åmål, Mammoth). Tickets for the Closing Night Film and Party are available through filmfestivalrotterdam.com.
 
Based on his wife’s graphic novel, Moodysson (1969, Malmö) made a wonderfully anarchistic yet authentic portrait of three teenage girls wanting to start a punk band in Stockholm.
 
Bobo, Klara en Hedvig decide to form a punk band in the early eighties to air their grievances against society, with meaningful songtitles like Brezhnev and Reagan, Fuck Off!. Moodysson portrays the turbulent punk era with lots of humor and energy. People of all ages can identify with these girls, who insist on not being a girl band, connected by their insecurities, embarrassing parents, unrequited love and feeling left out.
 
Director and writer Lukas Moodysson made his writing debut at at the age of seventeen with an anthology of poetry. In 1999 he made his very successful first feature film Fucking Åmål, which screened at IFFR. Rotterdam also showed Together (2000), Lilya 4-Ever (2002), A Hole in my Heart (2004) and Container (2006).
 
IFFR’s Closing Night screening of We Are The Best! takes place in the Grand Auditorium (‘Grote Zaal’) of festival venue De Doelen at 9 pm. Before the start of the film, the favorites of the festivalaudience will be awarded the UPC Audience Award for best festival film and the Dioraphte Award for best Hubert Bals Fund-supported film. After the screening, the festival will wrap up in style with the Closing Night Party.
