With Hi Hawaii the musical gluttones Jens Bouttery and Lennart Heyndels deliver real "art pop" or as they call it: "experimental fizz pop explosion". The core revolves around catchy pop songs surrounded by a lot of unbridled improvisations and wild solos. So it is no coincidence that they chose a tragicomedy film like Songs from the second Floor when they were asked, last year as part of Film Fest Gent, to provide a film with a new soundtrack. In this classic, the Swedish grandmaster Roy Andersson brings an abstract form of everyday banal reality. The film is an ode to human failure. With absurdism, slightly reminiscent of Monty Python or Jiskefet, but much more serious and worrying. With his poetic film language, Andersson reflects a strong form of social criticism. There is clearly something wrong with the world. Economically yes, morally definitely.
