Inhalt

Play it Loud!

Everything is cool: the neon-colored dresses, the cheeky looks and most of all – the music. It’s the 1980s and New Wave Music roller-coasters its way across Europe. And Harry, 19, wants to be part of it. Nobody would call his job as a bank clerk "cool", but his friends certainly are. Vince, Melitta and Freddie are musicians – managing their band "Apollo Schwabing" is supposed to be Harry’s stairway to his dreams.

But becoming a successful "cool" music manager is not easy at all – soon Harry is confronted with a total disaster – losing his girlfriend, losing his job, and losing his friendship with the "Apollos"... In this hilarious coming-of-age-comedy, Harry learns that putting everything at risk is the only way to win: Play it Loud! – waste your youth and thoroughly enjoy it!
