A group of four high school girls decide to put together a band for their school cultural festival. Three days before they are to play the festival, the guitarist and singer quit the band. The remaining members must figure out what to do or risk canceling. They need to find a new member to be the singer, so they ask the first girl who walks by. Unfortunately, she doesn't speak Japanese very well. Only three days before their high school festival, guitarist Kei (Yu Kashii), drummer Kyoko (Aki Maeda), and bassist Nozumi (Shiori Sekine) are forced to recruit a new lead vocalist for their band. They choose Korean exchange student Son (Bae Doo-Na), though her comprehension of Japanese is a bit rough! It’s a race against time as the group struggles to learn three tunes for the festival’s rock concert—including a classic '80s punk-pop song by the Japanese group The Blue Hearts called “Linda Linda”...

Grant S (jp) wrote: A very one-dimensional and unconvincing look at one of the most evil people to have ever lived. Concentrates entirely on Stalin's dealings with the people around him, and ignores the history occuring at the same time. For example, the pact with Hitler to invade Poland is not even mentioned. World War 2, which I expected (and hoped) to take up a large portion of the movie, is glossed over. Robert Duvall's performance is very unconvincing, especially for such a great actor. Wooden, stereotypical. Not worth a watch, on any level. Fails as a human drama, fails as a history lesson.

Francisco P (au) wrote: It is an amazing dark comedy. One of my favorite ideas of the plot, Ferdinando "Fefe" (Mastroianni) misses to watch a movie that the whole town is watching (La Dolce Vita) where he is also the protagonist.
