Storyline

In a small provincial town four high school teenagers are facing the graduation, but all that is on their minds is how to woo the home crowd to a concert full of Beatles hits, played by their band. They do not have amplifiers to do the show, so they put together some makeshift equipment which eventually leaves one of them electrocuted.

Long, long time ago; far away from Liverpool.
28 March 2003 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

Those of you who didn't live behind the Iron Curtain (I mean east of it) won't understand what it was like to be a Beatles (Stones, Who, Bowie) fan there (or maybe you will). I wasn't there (i'm only 24 now), but I know few facts. First of all you couldn't buy records as there weren't any, then you couldn't have longer hair as you would be expelled from the school, and off course you weren't allowed to behave like your idols (in any aspect). This picture illustrates it perfectly. It's about passion, friendship but not only. It's also about growing up, losing your teenage dreams, rebellion against opressive enviroment.

I liked the lighter, more humorous side of this flick more. Some more sentimental stuff didn't help this film. But if you're looking for a portrait of Polish youth in 1960's, you're fond of small-town-set pictures (like I am) then you'd definitely love this one.

7/10
