Comedy, Crime drama
Unlike the repetitive Christmas song, there are only six drummers drumming in Sound of Noise, a tongue-in-cheek Swedish heist flick in which no property is stolen, and no one gets hurt. The drummers are, in essence, mounting a performance art installation, teaching a subdued city a lesson about the fatuous entertainment in their lives (or something). So, they make drum kits out of everyday things and break a couple of minor laws in the process. But who are they? Police officer Amadeus Warnebring (Bengt Nilsson) is on the case. As fate would have it, a guy named Amadeus—who comes from a family of professional musicians and is dissecting a musical mystery—hates music. And he's tone-deaf, to boot. A good find, Sound of Noise has a wry sense of humor and some astounding musical sequences when the drummers go to work.
