Why I loved this film: I have been an Abba fan from a very young age, due to listening to my parents' records, I was even called Super Trouper sometimes, I saw the musical of the same name and now the movie.
To start with, I was amazed at how they managed to write a story around music that has existed for many decades, and write it so well!
Besides focusing on Abba songs, the film shows us the important things in life, what you do not have does not matter, you should only care about those that care about you too, and do not give up on your dreams because sometimes... A fairytale does come true!
