ABBA: The MovieDirector: Lasse Hallström
ABBA, the spirited Swedish pop-singing group who skyrocketed to fame with their 1974 single "Waterloo," star in this loosely constructed vehicle. The story involves the efforts of a diligent DJ to secure an interview with the group while they're on tour in Australia. Eighteen of ABBA's hits are heard on the soundtrack and seen in grainy 16 mm concert footage, shot in March 1977. ABBA: The Movie was thus filmed some five years prior to the group's breakup. The film's director was Sweden's Lasse Hallström, who later gained infamy for his arthouse success My Life as a Dog (1985).

This DVD provides a personal tour with ABBA in Australia. The music was good. Interviews were funny. Highly recommended.
I highly reccomend this dvd for any Abba lover. Gives insight to the Australian tour 1977. Kept my attention throughout the movie. They have a mezmerizing stage appearance. Makes me want to buy more of thier concert videos to relive Abbamania.
