Gorgeous, raunchy, frequently hilarious, and shot through with fantasy interludes of stunning beauty, Popular Music's setting is a tiny village in Arctic Sweden in the 60s. Two teenage boys decide to become rock stars to pick up girls but they haven't reckoned on the conservative mentality of their hometown, for whom even the Beatles seem Satanic.
