When the kids swing the film by director Thomas Carter works. The music and dancing of the rebel kids in Germany during the 30's is worth seeing. The drama on the other hand is nonexistent.

The problems which there rich Swing Kids face, such as forced membership in the Hitler Youth, pales compared to the horrors which the Nazis forced on others during the holocaust.

Without the tension of real danger, the pressures and consequences faced are freely telegraphed and lack the dramatic shock necessary to hold interest.
