This movie may be repulsive at first since the actors are not experienced enough. But, it is definetely worth watching.
Anyway, if you like music, band stories you will not be dissapointed.

I liked it because of its charimastic characters, light passion focus and because it touches art in general. And of course beacuse the music is just DAEBAK !!!

You learn that a true artist is someone who work hard but also has a muse which he get hold of inspiration.
Perhaps love is the essence of life...

:D

Since I am a huge fan of Mate's music, I had really really high expectations, but at the same time, I was sure that they wouldn't be met, because those kind of movies tend to be very slow. I was wrong.

Ok, let me be honest. The story was typical for that kind of movie, nothing special, and their acting was good, it could have been better, though.

What made this movie so great was really just the music that fit just so perfectly. It was like the scenes were selected for the songs, not the other way around (and I guess that was the case. After all, this movie is supposed to focus on Mate and their music.)

I could watch this movie again and again because those songs just don't get old and seeing them perform and struggle to fulfil their dream was just so mesmerizing.

Everyone who likes Mate or that kind of music should definitely watch the movie. You won't regret it!
