Sounds Like Teen Spirit

Oh no, you may think, a documentary about the Junior Eurovision song contest! Self-centred wannabe kids and awful songs! You’d be wrong. Yes, it is about Eurovision, and many of the songs are appalling, but what comes over is the solidarity between the contestants, and how un-egotistical they are. Giorgos wants people to notice Cyprus, Mariam wants to do well for Georgia. Warm, humorous, ironical, never superior or nasty, this is a fine little film.
