After a couple of false starts, the most anticipated DVD for all ABBA fans is about to be released.

ABBA the Movie was filmed in 1977 in Australia during the band's tremendously successful tour of that continent. In 1976 ABBA dominated the Australian charts like no other act has done before or since, so when the band decided to stage its first world tour the following year, Australia was one of the (very few) destinations.

The movie is basically a documentary following the band as they perform and thrill Australian audiences of all ages, from Sydney all the way to Perth. The majority of the footage consists of the band performing most of its early classics in front of thousands of ecstatic fans. We also get some backstage shots and a thin storyline that runs throughout the movie, about a radio DJ who is trying to get an exclusive interview with the band. Thankfully, the scenes involving the reporter are short and don't interfere with the real show, ABBA's performance.

From the very beginning, when the band arrives at Sydney's airport, you get the sense that ABBAmania has swept Australia. The view of so many screaming fans lining up the streets all the way into the city is just breathtaking. You will have to look back to old footage of the Beatles arriving in the US to see anything comparable.

One of the early scenes, a the press conference, the band gets to answer the standard questions, and we learn nothing new other than the fact that Agnetha speaks English with a heavy (sexy) Swedish accent, an accent that is much stronger than it sounds on the records.

If you are looking for some insights about the band and their private lives away from the spotlight, you won't find it here.

As a convert from pop music crumudgen to lover of all things ABBA, I have been looking forward to the release of "ABBA The Movie" for a long time. Unfortunately, I saw release dates come and go with only that mocking Amazon.com, 2010 date shown (which basically is code for "sorry kid, your out of luck"). To my surprise the DVD has finally been released. When I first purchased this DVD, I knew absolutely nothing about it's contents. Was it a documentary about the band? A concert film? A rock opera, ETC? Well, from a totally unique and original music group, "ABBA The Movie" turns out to be a very unique and original film. Swedish Filmmaker, Lasse Hallstrom basically gives us a look at the mania, that transpired 'down under' during ABBA's monumental, 1977 concert tour of Australia. Dosn't sound that different from all the other rock movies you've seen... right? Nope! Hallstrom came up with an interesting ideal. Within the real life events he was filming, he created a fictional, narrative about a country radio DJ named Ashley Wallace (Robert Huges), who is sent on a do or die mission by his station manager to get an intimate interview with ABBA. This is pretty much an impossible mission considering, that it seems like everyone in th Aussie world is trying to get up, close & personal to the band. Sounds like a stupid, cheesy ideal for a film, right? In lesser hands this could have a disaster. But Hallstrom uses this conceit not for just cheap comedy (though there are some humourus scenes), but to take an inspired look at the mania (which seems to involve an entire continent), that surrounded the tour and the love that fans and onlookers have for this pop group. It's all things ABBA! If your looking for a personal film about Benny, Bjorn, Agnetha & Anni-Frid your out of luck.Read more ›

Back in 1977 Abba Mania had reached fever pitch here in Australia....It was us Aussies who launched Abba high into the charts by making Mamma Mia and Waterloo instant number ones at a time when the UK did not want anything to do with them. I queued from 9am to 4-30pm in the pouring rain to get front row seats at the Sydney Concert which was a sea of umbrellas. At 8pm (rain still pouring) Abba took to the stage. The girls hair seemed to swing in unison as they clawed towards the audience singing "Tiger". Abba had arrived. I was 19 back then and still love Abba dearly. I now have the special edition DVD and with the DTS surround sound turned up full boar its just like being at the concert again and even better still watching it with an entertainment projector on my living room wall...The film captures the hectic 2 weeks in March 1977 when Abba toured Australia at a time when 4 in every 5 household had at least one Abba record and every single Aussie lived and breathed Abba..Do yourself a favor and buy this movie as it is as timeless and classic as Abba themselves

A thought came to me that if I were to put on a very limited showing of rock/pop films it might include The Beatles' Hard Day's Night, The Band's Last Waltz, then I thought why not this one to help encapsulate the feeling of the late 1970s. Filmed fantastically by Hallstrom (a major motion picture director ever since), with split screens and the whole thing, puts the viewer into the middle of the frenzy, the huge concerts, touring/meet-and-greet schedule, maniacal fans, etc. The concert footage is terrific, sound is excellent, plus the small handful of Australian actors are very memorable. I come across rock history buffs and musicians who still don't get the whole ABBA thing (this is coming from a guy who also listens to Sonic Youth, by the way), but perhaps this film will do it. Glad to see this on DVD - have been waiting a long time.
