Press notes

“An absolute powerhouse of feelings! It’s not possible to leave the movie theater without being in a good mood, and feeling inspired.” FAZ Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

 “A declaration of love to dancing teenagers, an homage to Royston Maldoom and Sir Simon Rattle - and a clear endorsement of the importance of music!“
Welt am Sonntag

“This emotional movie tells the stirring tale of respect, tolerance, love and passion, and proves that it is worth using unusual methods to connect the beauty of music with social commitment.” Financial Times
