What could have been...
23 February 2002 | by rogermooreSee all my reviews

ABBA, one of the biggest groups in the entire world. Yet so little is known about the Swedish foursome. This documentary tries to enlighten us about 10 years of ABBA in 60 or 90 min. (depends on which version you have seen). But, of course, 60 or 90 min. is far too short for that. We get to know almost nothing about the members of ABBA themselves. Agnetha, unfortunately, doesn't want to be filmed. It's a shame ABBA didn't want to filmed together, so that they could react upon each other, ooh what could have been...
