Member Picks: ABBA: The Movie
A reporter needs a scoop - will the Swedish legends comply?
Dir Lasse Hallström
With Agnetha Fältskog, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus
Some English subtitles
Depicting the group’s victory tour across Australia, ABBA: The Movie mixes documentary with fiction, and with its classic 70s visual language and ABBA performances has become a cult classic. Directed by Lasse Hallström, who was responsible for nearly all of Abba’s iconic music videos, the film follows a radio DJ who desperately tries to get an interview with the group to save his job.
‘A go-to, feel-good movie set against the soundtrack of a band that defined the late 70s pre-punk sound and is more popular than ever today.’
