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.

A great film for those who know what they're getting into.
27 December 2014 | by gaute-96See all my reviews

This movie is based off a Norwegian bestseller with the same title, and has not much to do with the bands history. It is more or lass meant to be watched by Norwegian audiences who, in their youth, discovered the amazing book. The movie does a decent job of capturing the magic that Saabye put into words, and should be watched as an incarnation of that book, nothing else.

I fear that much of the charm of the movie will be lost in translation to foreign audiences, and that does take a much away from the movie since it's supposed to make you feel nostalgic. But regardless, it is a good movie for all watchers to enjoy as it shows how it was like to be a teenager in those days, in a complimentary kind of way.
