Why It Rocks
- Nice directing, especially during the parts that show footage showing the camera going inside clouds, and above farms throughout the Netherlands.
- Good performances by all of the artists listed below.
- Some cool scenes like the part where the violinist is playing and the thunderstorm occurs, and with some people in the forest and the scene with the swan.
- In some parts, the musicians' hair or clothes have a red or orange outline, which looks very cool.
- The interviews are alright, but the time could've been used for more performances and shots of the audience.
- Some of the directing isn't very good, because in some parts, the film shows the audience more than the musicians.
