I had a wonderful time, that is one great entertainment,
but I guess you have to be familiar with ABBA 's work to enjoy it!
The songs are the true star here, it's basically some ABBA songs, and the story was written about and around these songs, which kind of reminded me of singin' in the rain!!!
Watching the movie, I was waiting for Waterloo to come along any minute, ( being a Eurovision song contest fan, you know, Waterloo was the Swedish entry , and won the contest in 1974) but all I got was a background instrumental version of it at the fist 20 minutes of the movie, and I had to wait until the very very very end of the movie to have Waterloo,!! This song just HAS to be there !
Streep was fantastic, she can really do ANYTHING, even a musical!!
she made me laugh, and she filled my eyes with tears in " slipping through my fingers" number.
I don't know the stage show, now after seeing the movie, I can't get how it's been done with out the great cinematography and the amazing Greek landscapes !! which made the movie not only a feast for the ears , but also for the eyes.
It's highly recommended ( of course If you're an ABBA fan)
PS. I posted this message to the movie and ESC groups, I guess this thing doesn't happen much, or ever!!!! and I love it, I hope that the next time I'll do this will be when I see a movie about the ESC or about someone who participated in the contest more than once, maybe my beloved Gary Lux!!
Horton: All right, I gotta get this speck up to the top of Mount Nool A.S.A.P, whatever that means, probably act swiftly awesome packaderm! I mean, how hard can that be?
