This is a visually stunning reinterpretation of Beatles music. The lushness of the colours and the glorious visuals combine with familiar music that has been turned into new shapes and contexts.
The plot is tissue paper thin, but you won't care! It's just an excuse to get from one luscious production number to the next. Set in the late 60s, all the songs are set to a social context, but really it's about the music and visuals not the message.
Evan Rachel Wood is gorgeous in an innocent sort of way, and Diana Fuchs will change the way you think about the songs she sings.
I loved this movie and have watched it many times – because it is the spectacle rather than the plot it has good replay value and I would recommend it to anyone for their collection.
Blu-ray is the icing on the cake for this because the colours are just so vivid and the detail that is brought out by HD adds immensely to a movie that relies on the combination of visual imagery and sound.
