About the film:

World Premiere at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival. When “Take On Me” reached number 1 on Billboard in the US in 1985, it turned its three young band members into global superstars overnight. While the iconic song and its groundbreaking music video remain ubiquitous to this day, the story of a-ha didn’t end there.

Following Mags, Morten and Pål over a period of four years, A-ha: The Movie provides unprecedented access to the inner workings of the band as well as a career spanning look at one of the most enduring and beloved acts in pop music history.

“a long-term musical marriage as close, fraught, and marked by feuds as that of the Bee Gees or the Stones… everything you need to know about the career of A-ha”

—Owen Gleiberman for Variety
