Paris–  “Beatles,” a coming-of-age tale based on Lars Saabye Christensen’s bestseller, is set to open the 42th Norwegian Intl. Film Festival in Haugesund.

“Like the novel, (‘Beatles’) is a spot-on portrait of an age. It is a humorous and sensitive story about teenager insecurity and yearning,” said program director Håkon Skogrand. “Virtually everyone who was young during the 1960s, who has been it since, and who is young today, will be able to identify with and enjoy this adaptation of Saabye Christensen’s universe. I really look forward to open this year’s festival with ‘Beatles.’”

Pic is directed by Dane Peter Flinth, who presented “Arn – The Kingdom at the End of the Road” in 2008.

Saabye Christensen’s novel follows the adventures of four Beatles fans who grew up in the ’60s in Oslo and formed a rock band.  It stars Peter GantzlerSusanne BoucherJonathan Chedeville and Tomas Borg Henriksen. »
