About the Film
Beatles is the ultimate coming-of-age story. Four teenage boys are growing up in Oslo at the time when Beatle - mania hits Norway. Kim, Gunnar, Ola and Seb each take on one of the Fab Fours names, and they plan to start their own outfit, The Snafus. Like many teenage dreams, this one never comes to fruition, but the need to save up for instruments becomes the drive behind much of what they do as they blunder through their formative years, struggling with archaic textbooks and ancient teachers, discovering girls, being beaten up by rival gangs, experimenting with alcohol, and finding their footing as activists.
