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 »
I was in Iceland during the summer of 1982 and accompanied Anna Bjorn to the set where this movie was being shot. They were shooting a bar scene with hundreds of extras in a small town an hour or so outside Reykjavik. I cannot remember the director's name but, sometime during the evening, he asked me to help with a scene. I was asked to dance while one of the female stars acted like she was trying to seduce me on the dance floor in an attempt to make one of the band members jealous. Although not a good dancer, I played the part. I never saw the film but would be very interested to know if the scene described was ultimately included in the movie. I was wearing a yellow knit shirt.
If you have seen this movie and recall the scene, please let me know.
