Heavy Trip

For that segment of the audience who find nothing more heavenly than to split their eardrums to the discordant blast of heavy metal, Flower the wacky Finnish comedy Heavy Trip does not disappoint. Part let’s-get-it-together band saga and part road movie, the story arc is awfully familiar, but that doesn’t stop it being a rollicking romp.

True raucous music played by strung-out Scandi dudes, Vikings and corpse-stealing may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But this first feature, co-directed with joyful enthusiasm by Juuso Laatio and Jukka Vidgren, packs a lot of fun and will be especially embraced by the horns-in-the-air set. It bowed at SXSW, followed by a gig at Norway’s iconic extreme Inferno Metal Festival.

If there’s a lot of good humor to be found in heavy metal to begin with, this band — dubbed Impaled Rektum, to its members’ general satisfaction — takes it to the higher octave of an affectionate spoof. In a picture-postcard little town in the quiet Finnish countryside, four boys slog at routine jobs but indulge their passion for metal whenever they can. Turo (Johannes Holopainen, playing at the other extreme from his role in Unknown Soldier) is the band’s frontman; his day job is being a distracted orderly in a mental institution, where he cleans up messes. He swallows his resentment at the townies’ jibes over his long, straight hair and pours out his fury to the mic in endless screams.
