Movie Reviews

Beatlemania Teen Life
Sir Hatton | 05/11/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film brought a lot of memories of the 60s back to me. It was an era of hippies where drugs and making love - not war was cool. The film is set in Denmark that draws on a number of universal themes. The editorial review gives a good summary of what the film is about.
*Watch Zappa first when Bjorn was a 13-year-old punk who eventually stands up to the gang leader. Then watch Twist and Shout when Bjorn is 17 and learns to accept responsibility for his actions and help his friend, Eric, when he needed it."
