Linda Linda Linda

This film was one of those sleepers we discovered during our 16 hour plane ride to Bangkok, in between our somnambulistic ramen and congee snacking. It also brought to our attention Japanese punk rebels The Blue Hearts, the band who actually wrote the song Linda Linda Linda for which the movie's named. Upon deeper comparison the version performed by four uniformed school girls, including one shy Korean exchange student, became our favorite. There are hidden rewards to painfully long flights.
