Thunderstruck The time is 1991. The location is Sydney. The event is AC/DC’s Razor Edge Tour. And in the thick of the mosh pit are five boys: Sonny, Ben, Lloyd, Sam and Ronnie, having a pearler of a time. When the concert concludes, the boys head on up to the VIP room…and are promptly thrown out.

Thunderstruck I’ve seen this wonderful and charming feelgood film at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. It was a great pleasure and I went to the screening twice as it was just great fun!
Everybody who came out of the screening was in a good mood and had a smile in his face. That’s the magic cinema can be!
This film gets you without a well-known cast. A different kind of road movie with strange and funny characters. You don’t have to be an AC/DC fan to like the film. It has a great cast, huge talented director and amazing locations. A real thunderstruck with a superb soundtrack that takes you on a spectacular rock’n roll journey.
