ABBA: The Movie

 (1977)

ABBA: The Movie Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In his film debut, director Lasse Hallström captures the offstage life and live-concert excitement of Swedish pop superstars ABBA (Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus and Agnetha Fältskog, playing themselves) during the group's 1977 Australian tour. Serving as the movie's framing device is a subplot about the attempts of an industrious disc jockey (Robert Hughes) seeking an exclusive interview with ABBA -- by any means necessary.

For more about ABBA: The Movie and the ABBA: The Movie Blu-ray release, see ABBA: The Movie Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Agnetha Fältskog, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus, Robert Hughes, Stig Anderson

ABBA: The Movie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The AVC encoded image (2.33:1 aspect ratio, with a windowboxed opening) presentation is hampered by limited concert coverage and cruddy stage lighting, yet the basic cinematic experience is preserved with the presence of mild grain and a crisp read of Panavision boundaries. While some flicker and banding are detected, along with some print debris, the viewing experience is satisfactory without ever being truly remarkable, with issues of crush robbing difficult stage shots of depth, watching backgrounds and dark textures thicken. Fine detail is adequate for a softly shot feature that employs numerous filters to acquire a dreamy appearance, with bright exteriors bringing out the feel of clothing, the rush of sweaty anxiety, and the throngs of undulating fans gathered outside hotels and airports. Amusing particulars are found during street scenes as well, providing a crisp look at merchandise and the quirks of interviewees. Colors are a little on the faded side, but hold up fine, delivering costuming opulence as intended.


ABBA: The Movie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The 5.1 PCM sound mix is a volatile blend of interviews and comedy, while concert sequences create immediate immersion into the music. Highs are a touch on the shrill side, falling in line with recording equipment of the era, while a healthy low-end lays a convincing foundation of bass and percussion, helping to even out the tunes. Surrounds are inviting for group gatherings and concert mania, while the soundtrack retains crisp musicianship and personality, with comfortable separation and placement without any real sweeping directional movement. Human moments return to a frontal position, navigating accents and exasperation easily. With a movie like this, bigness counts for something, and the BD delivers on that evocative challenge, bringing concert sensations to life. A more refined balance between the highs and the lows is missing, but rarely mourned.
