Movie Summary

Director:
Lasse Hallström
Released:
1977
Rating:
G
ABBA: The Movie follows the misadventures of an Australian radio DJ Ashely Wallace (Robert Hughes) as he pursues Swedish pop group ABBA trying to get an interview during the band's week-long 1977 tour of Australia. After his boss (Bruce Barry) mandates an interview with ABBA, Ashley follows the band across the country but manages to miss opportunities to talk to the band at every turn. He loses his press pass, sleeps late, and is opposed by ABBA's imposing bodyguard (Tom Oliver). The film also features performances of ABBA's biggest hits from their concerts in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, and Adelaide. The highlights include "Dancing Queen," "Fernando," "Name Of The Game," and "Mamma Mia" as well as an early ABBA song "Get on the Carousel" that is unavailable anywhere else. Directed by future Oscar nominee Lasse Hallstrom, ABBA: The Movie is a comedic romp with all of the great ABBA music you remember from the 1970s.
