This movie is super-mergentroid!
Oh my god.
That’s all I have to say.
This movie is up there with countless others as great Nazi Germany/www2 movies. It’s so heartfelt and beautiful that I was crying buckets throughout the whole thing. It feels like an Invasion of the Body Snatchers, except it really happened. Robert Sean Leonard is one of the most brilliant actors in the world, even though he’s highly under-rated. Esspecially check out the dance scenes, unlike other swing movies, this one seems far less choreographed and pre-planned, it gives the film spontaneity. My favorite scene though is at the end when Willy’s saying good-bye to Peter screaming “Swing Heil, Peter! Swing Heil!” I just lost it.
So for the love of God, please see this movie which is staggering in brilliance. It’s super-mergentroid!
A Thought Provoking Tale of Friendship, Honor, and Loyalty that got overlooked.
Swing Kids tells the story of Peter, Thomas, and Arvid (played wonderfully by Robert Sean Leonard, Christian Bale, and Frank Whaley respectively). They all live a carefree life fueled by the American swing music of the late 1930s. But living in Germany in 1938, these boys see the change that is coming and it is Hitler’s reign that first tears them apart. Peter is caught by Hitler’s military police when he attempts to steal a radio for Arvid and he is thenforced to join the Hitler Youth. Thomas joins so that his friend will not have to go through it alone. They go along with the HJ way of life during the day, while still living it up in the illegal swing clubs at night until Thomas falls victim to the HJ ways and starts believing in Hitler’s ways causing conflict among the boys. Arvid’s loyalties do not lie with Germany and stronly opposses the Hitler way of life. Peter must decide what he believes in and come to terms with the death of his father at the hands of the government six years prior to the story. I would like to say it has a happy ending, but any story about the rise of the Nazi’s in Germany can not fully end on a happy note. It is an educational film that should be examined and studied by those who want to fully understand what really happened in Germany and learn the untold story of the few who oppossed.
