TWO YEARS IN THE FAST LANE WITH THE ELECTRO-ROCKERS DÚNÉ
Over the course of their teenage years, the seven members of Dúné have achieved much more than most people do in an entire lifetime. So when 'Stages' condenses two years of the band's life into a 90-minute movie, it's not surprising that the seams are threatening to split. From rehearsals to a student party - and directly on to playing in front of 20,000 spectators in Germany with a huge third-day hangover. The debut director Uffe Truust, who has previously made music videos for the band, manages to get right into 'bed' with the band. Both when they discuss their relationship issues and when one of the seven members is hit by an emotional jet lag somewhere between Moscow and Tokyo. 'Stages' is an honest and candid portrait of seven vulnerable youths, who together have realized their dream of the wild rock'n'roll life. But who also stick together through thick and thin, when it's time to pay the costs in the form of constant demands and expectations. It's full speed ahead all the way through, and one doesn't doubt one second that the world is waiting for them.
