A celebration of rock & folk music
6 June 2001 | by tor.saetherSee all my reviews

In the spirit of Woodstock and other large scale music festivals of the period, Norwegian audiences finally got their own festival in June 1973. This was Ragnarock - actually named after Ragnarokk, the Norse version of the Armageddon - sporting a plethora of Norwegian, Scandinavian and also a few international artists.

The movie is a 102 minute representation of this ambitious event, and it does indeed bear several similarities to the Woodstock movie. Although not quite as successful (both artistically and of course commercially, much due to the fact that the average standard of the featured artist may not be as high), this movie is still quite an entertaining piece of Norwegian cultural history.

Worth seeing and hearing. Keep your eyes open for some great looking people, both on and off stage.
