I wish I was older so that I could have enjoyed ABBA the first time around. This ‘movie’ has taken a lot of flack over the years, and as a movie, it is lacking. But view it more as a documentary, with lots of live music from the Australia tour, and it's a cracker. Glad it was re-leased on DVD.

"ABBA Live the Way They Were!"
4 stars"

This movie brilliantly captures ABBA mania (aliken to The Beatle mania a decade before) in Australia during the height of their popularity there.

The film was directorial feature film debut for Lasse Hallstrom, who previously recorded most of the group's music videos. Later he went on to do feature films “My Life As A Dog”, “Chocolat”, “Casanova” among others.

The main emphasis are the concerts across Australia with a weak plot to tie them together, forgo that and you have historical record of the shows and behind the scenes. Still watchable and enjoyable, but don't expect an uninterrupted complete concert, just a mishmash of them.

The butterfly effect was the first used in any movie and later appeared in “Superman – The Movie”.


Almost three decades after music fans first flocked to cinemas all over the world to see it, ABBA  The Movie is finally released on DVD. The feature film documents ABBA's tour of Australia in March 1977 which turned out to be perhaps the most amazing event in the entire ABBA story, as the four Swedes experienced hysterical adulation from the entire Australian population; all vividly captured by director Lasse Hallstrom. Never before released in Australia, ABBA The Movie has been meticulously restored and received a brand new digital transfer, while the soundtrack has been mixed into 5.1 surround sound.
