It's November 1989, and the Berlin Wall is falling. In Stavanger, Norway, teenage boy Jarle has a great new girlfriend and is starting a rock band with his buddies. But when a new boy, the synth pop-listening Yngve, joins his class, Jarle is more fascinated than he wants to be, and the world as he knows it starts to crumble. Written by
Peter Brandt Nielsen
Mannen som elsket Yngve is a heart-warming story which will make you laugh and cry at the same time. Now keep in mind that I did not read the book which this movie was based on by Tore Renberg. But this movie actually made me want to check it out. I loved the script and the characters were good and original. The music which is chosen is also great and really fits that whole 80's theme. It's very clear that the makers used a long time picking out every song. I almost felt like I was back in the 80's of Norway. I simply loved all the small details throughout the film such as posters, behaviors and clothing.
My favorite thing about this movie is the mix between humour and drama. The only bad thing I can say about this film is that it is too short. I think some of the scenes should last longer. The scenes where Yngve and Jarle met each other for the first time went too fast. Now as I said, I don't know how the book is. But anyway it's still a great movie.
