Year 1977. Punk and new wave rock’n’roll has arrived to remote Finland and a bleak small town Oulu. Välde dreams of joining a rock band and becoming famous. He wants to get drunk for the first time, and to win the love of Pike, the most beautiful girl in the class. When Pike wins the Miss Blue Jeans contest and takes as her boyfriend the bourgeois Henri Hakala, Välde puts all his eggs in one basket. He abandons his former self and begins purposefully constructing a new persona for himself. But everything doesn’t go as Välde wanted …
Miss Blue Jeans is a fine rock film, coming of age story and period movie. There is grim realism and a humoristic bite in its study of working class circumstances (the drab factory and the cramped room shared by mother and son) but no miserabilism.
