Format: DVD
"Abba-The Movie" was in the cinemas back in 1978 and this re-release brings back wonderful momories. Digitally remastered and with bonus features including an interview with Bjorn,Benny and director Lasse Halstrom the music harks back to a time before the devorces and the serious stuff took hold of the Abba members.The photography and footage of the Australian concerts is amazing and its so nice to hear the oldies again."Tiger","S.O.S",Rock Me",Mamma Mia","He Is Your Brother","Money Money Money",and "Ive Been Waiting For You"are all here and it looks like the performers had the time of their lives.Frida and Bjorn hamming it up on "Why Did It Have To Be Me",Benny virtually lifting himself off his piano stool during "Intermezzo No 1" and Agnetha laughing and joking with the band shows she wasn't always the crumbling wreck she's so often percieved as being.O.K so the little sub-plot about the d.j trying to get an interview is light weight but the scenes premiering "Eagle" and "The Name Of The Game" are excellent under Halstrom's direction. The joy in the performance of "So Long",the audience reaction to both "Fernando" and "Dancing Queen" and the inclusion of "Get On The Carousel" are reason enough to get this, let alone the stunning ariel shot of the stockholm Islands closing with "Thank You For The Music"...Brilliant..Buy it!

Well i wasn't around for the Abba days so i'm so grateful that someone thought to make this wonderful movie!! Not for the not so genius story, but for the wonderful concert footage! Just amazing!!
Songs include Fernando, Dancing Queen, Waterloo, Gimme Gimme Gimme, Money Money Money, Why Did It Have To Be Me (Bjorn and Frida only!!! HGHLIGHT!) I've Been Waiting For You - all LIVE!
Imagine Fernando - Frida singing beautifully, her warm deep inviting voice and long firey red straight hair blowing in the warm night breeze - just beautiful - ON THIS DVD!
You really get such a buzz and feel like you're really back in the 70's, back there at those concerts with them!! Sensational!!
I first bought the PAL video and played it over and over again - now i have The Movie on DVD - It's FAB!!
MUST BUY FOR ANY ABBA FANS!! :-)

I was very excited to hear that the great work the Swedish Film institute did on this film was being now presented in Blu-Ray Format.

Fistly Thankyou.

This is a excellent transfer considering the film was made in 1977 for a limited release.

I was 12 years old when ABBA came to sydney in 1977.

Being one of 4 children and with just 1 income in the family I could not
go to see ABBA in concert.

Reading the paper every day when they were here I still remember what a mad time it was then.

Jump to Christmas 2007.

The Blu-ray arrives and I got to see it on my dad's new 56" Samsung plasma
with surround. It was great to watch it with my family.

The picture is beautiful, The sound is fantastic. I did get to go to the concert and was transported to another time.

Thankyou for all the hard work in this release.

If you are a true ABBA fan Buy it.

Being a die-hard fan myself, i was THRILLED when this was on tv a couple of years ago, and have spent the following time trying to track it down on video. This is the closest i have come!
To put it bluntly, this is a fly-on-the-wall film about ABBA on tour in Australia. The director was given access to the group while on tour, so all the footage you see of them is real life. (although Tom Oliver - Lou from neighbours - does play their security guard for plot purposes ) It features a great number of live performances, many of which appear on the LIVE album.
Having said this, there is a plot woven in, that was apparently thought of on the plane to australia. It involves a luckless DJ making a radio documentary on the group, and his continually thwarted attempts to interview them. It's not exactly hard to follow, but it does provide some laughs, and there are some really cute moments when he interviews children. ( no actors! )
All in all this is great for the serious fan, but people that are not so interested may not find enough here to keep them watching. But if you are mad about the group like me, then it is well worth trying to get hold of it. The performances of I'm a Marionette and Get off the Carousel are unique, in that in the former case it is completely different to the original version on The Album, and in the latter case i have never found this song anywhere else, and they are two brilliant tracks on this movie! So it's worth owning them. The version of dancing queen is very different too, but the exact same performance can be found on the LIVE album.
Basically it's a good singalong feel-good easy to watch candid film, and if you can find it then its well worth it!

Format: Blu-ray
Although ABBA didn't care much for touring they loved performing on stage especially Frida, the 'Movie' has all the hits and some surprises with stunning live HD footage and truely brillant remasterd audio. Although the plot is week, it does add humour and presents ABBA in some unusual situations (the lift scene is fun and shots of them on the road are revealing). Highlights are Tiger as they hit the stage, Frida in Why did it have to be, the rarely seen Carousel and Eagle.

Its a great time capsule of a live performance in the 1970's with real singing and an energetic stage presence compared to todays over produced, auto tuned 'live' performances.
