Beatles will open the 42nd Norwegian International Film Festival, which runs Aug 16-22
Dane Peter Flinth’s adaptation of Lars Saabye Christensen’s novel of the same name centres on a gang of boys who involuntarily grow up, losing each other to life’s many pitfalls. It features several original Beatles songs.
Producer Jørgen Storm Rosenberg will be at the festival, ten years after he opened the festival with his debut production Uno.
Flinth commented: “I am greatly pleased that Beatles has been chosen to open the Norwegian Film Festival in Haugesund. I have been there many times – it’s a place where there is always time, space and quiet to meet friends and colleagues from all of the Nordic countries.”
Beatles is produced by StormRosenberg and will be released in Norway on Aug 29 through Sf Norge.
