The Man Who Loved Yngve
Stian Kristiansen, 2008
Norway | 99 minutes

Set in 1989 with a vintage soundtrack, the rambunctious jockeying for attention in high school comes to life in Stian Kristiansen’s tough and tender story of a teen finding his own way. Amateur rocker Jarle, his pretty girlfriend Katrine, and best friend Helge form a tight-knit bunch, but the arrival of handsome Yngve sends an unexpected charge through Jarle. Based on a best-selling novel, the popular adaptation by the precocious Kristiansen gets at the surging, sometimes crude, and sometimes beautiful sentiments of adolescence.
