Movie Info

This Danish film is set in 1963, at the height of Beatlemania. His ego in tatters thanks to a domineering father, Lars Simonson yearns for the affections of wealthy Ulrikke Juul Bondo, though it is "common knowledge" that she's Adam Tonsberg's girl. Tonsberg, however, prefers down-to-earth Camilla Soeberg.

The moments of uplift in the film are rare, and they might lead you to believe that no one gets out of their teen years alive.
