Storyline

Set in the 60's. 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.

An original argument turned a good film
3 May 2001 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

Well, what could I say to introduce this film to those who haven't seen it. First, I've watched this film and loved it for the last 13 years. I saw it first on a night pass in Spanish TV and at that time the only thing I knew about it was that it had been in San Sebastian's Film Festival in 1985 ( just a comment this festival is one of the oldest and some of Hitchcock's were shown there for the first time, like Vertigo)and a line or two about the argument.I just couldn't believe it. A film from Poland telling the story of four Grammar School mates that love Beatles and hold together to play their music! And not just this, they let their hair grow to their shoulders wear their black suits (it's mid 60's) and called themselves John, Paul, Ringo and George. One of them (John or Paul, I can't remember because I've not seen it since 1992) lives with his grandmother who's as pessimist and feared of god that has a coffin prepared in case she suddenly died. This one is in love with a lovely blonde girl that goes to a girls College. I'm afraid this commentary is going too long so I congratulate the happy few that know and love Yesterday.

P.S. Sometimes I feel sad when searching on this Data Base (which is great, thanks a lot)and see that films that I appreciate aren't voted but by a few dozens especially when not being from US or shot in English, even films by great and supposedly widely known directors. I feel happy anytime I see a Spanish film commented by people from abroad and this is why I've decided to written this comment on Yesterday.
