Both bands depicted in the film were real pop bands at the time (named Stuðmenn and Grýlurnar), and all the performers real musicians who genuinely play their respective instruments on screen, with none of them being professional actors. The all-female Grýlurnar band disbanded not long after the film's release, while Stuðmenn still remain active (as of 2016), though with slight changes of band members. See more »
During the credits, Stuðmenn are walking after a parade on the streets of Kobenhagen. And at the very end there are fireworks over the Tivoly. See more »
This film is a big laugh comedy with some great music and fabulous acting. It's about two bands, a male band (Stuðmenn) and a female band (Grýlurnar) that go into competition about the Icelandic musical market. It's a comedy about the things that you do and do not do to get attention from the fans and to be bigger than the opponent. This film takes you to that year 1982, a big year in Icelandic musical history. This is my favourite movie and it is so worth the watch. I've seen it a million times and I never get tired. (Note: The soundtrack (Með allt á hreinu) is available at all Icelandic music stores)
