Fresh: A delightful comic cocktail of modern city symphony, police procedural and love story.
- Alissa Simon, Variety, Friday, February 17, 2012
Rotten: Great premise, middling execution.
- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Thursday, March 22, 2012
Fresh: "Sound of Noise" is a dry treat - a solid, self-aware cult pleasure.
- David DeWitt, New York Times, Thursday, March 8, 2012
In "Sound of Noise," Sanna(Sanna Persson) drives a stolen van to the beat of a different drummer, Magnus(Magnus Borjeson). They are tired of the old routine which is getting them nowhere and decide on something big, namely Magnus' concerto, 'Music for One City and Six Drummers' before recruiting four other frustrated musicians. Speaking of the authorities, detective Amadeus Warnebring(Bengt Nilsson) is hot on their trail since ironically being tone deaf in a family full of musicians means he can tell the difference between the sounds of a metronome and a ticking bomb. To put it simply, "Sound of Noise" is a musical caper movie. Now, there is something you do not see every day done in a rather atypical fashion. That's true even if it just comes down to artists wanting their work to matter, and not to do it just for the money. Specifically, this involves drummers who are expected to keep the rhythm of the music going while secretly wanting to do a twenty minute solo which you would not find with flutists unless of course it's Jethro Tull you're talking about. As far as Detective Warnebring goes, I guess I see where he fits into here, even though I honestly don't get how the silence is supposed to work.

I've never seen anything like this before, so in that respect, I was enthralled. The pace and soundtrack was reminiscent of Run Lola Run. I loved the animated sketches that were the blueprint for the havoc that was to be wreaked. I think Stephen Colbert has a new candidate for The ThreatDown. Musical Terrorists! Ahhhhh! Watch out Bears!!!
