Watch: First Trailer For Lukas Moodysson's '80s Teen Punk Rock Pic 'We Are The Best!'

Lukas Moodysson's 2000 film “Together” may have followed the director's breakout debut, “Fucking Amal,” but it is notable purely from a tonal standpoint as one of his most accessible and warm works in a sea of unrelenting dramas. Announced early last year, his latest film “VI ÄR BÄST!” (roughly translated as “We Are The Best”) appears to aim for the same optimistic mood, and now the first trailer has arrived to confirm the suspicion.

We Are The Best! (VI ÄR BÄST!)

Lukas Moodysson's 2000 film “Together” may have followed the director's breakout debut, “Fucking Amal,” but it is notable purely from a tonal standpoint as one of his most accessible and warm works in a sea of unrelenting dramas. Announced early last year, his latest film “VI ÄR BÄST!” (roughly translated as “We Are The Best”) appears to aim for the same optimistic mood, and now the first trailer has arrived to confirm the suspicion.

Set in 1980s Stockholm, the film is based off the graphic novel “Never Goodnight” by Coco Moodysson, and follows three 12 to 13-year-old girls who roam the city streets and form a punk band without instruments. Newcomers Mira Barkhammar, Mira Grosin and Liv LeMoyne populate the lead trio of roles, while alongside them sits a supporting cast of David Dencik (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”), Johan Liljemark and Anna Rydgren.

The first trailer—in Swedish without English subtitles, unfortunately—gives a brief glimpse of what to expect from the film, and it certainly looks like another solid effort from Moodysson; its vibrant period detail shines through clearly here, as does the potentially fantastic performances from the young girls. “VI ÄR BÄST!” is slated for an August release in Sweden, and likely the festival circuit afterwards. Watch the full trailer below, and decide if you'd like the film to make it overseas. [Twitch]
