The greatest soundtrack, and the best Norwegian teen movie ever


The eighties are coming to an end, and Jarle Klepp is opposed to almost everything. The only exceptions are Palestine, his mom, his friend Helge and his girl Katrine. All this changes when a new kid comes to town. Yngve plays tennis, wears polo shirts and listens to pop music, but in spite of all of this, Jarle Klepp falls in love with him. The well written dialogue, the impressive acting and Stian Kristiansen's great directing makes THE MAN WHO LOVED YNGVE a gem of a movie.
