Storyline

Four teenage boys come of age in Oslo at the time when Beatlemania hit Norway. Kim, Gunnar, Ola and Seb each take on one of the Fab Four's names and plan to start their own band during a time of great political upheaval. At the same time, they blunder through their formative years in ways all at once endearing, entertaining, and heartbreaking. The boys struggle with archaic textbooks and ancient teachers, attempt to be rebellious, and, of course, discover girls. Based on Lars Saabye Christensen's beloved bestseller of the same title, Beatles hits all the right notes with a familiar soundtrack (scored by Magne Furuholmen, keyboardist of the synthpop/rock band a-ha) and nostalgic recollection of losing innocence and the importance of friendship.

not the book, but well worth a watch
5 September 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I have just seen this movie and I thought it was good. I think this is one of the better movies Norway has made in a while and I highly recommend it. But if you go and see it you must not go in thinking that you will get to see the novel. The movie is not like the novel at all, there are many scenes from the novel that is missing, but going in with this in mind I think you will enjoy it. I feel sad that the movie isn't doing that good at the box office an I think that if you just view it as a stand alone picture you will probably enjoy it. I really wish more people will go and see this movie so it doesn't fail at the box office and that more people would stop comparing it to the book. 10/10
