A warm and bittersweet coming-of-age story, The Man Who Loved Yngve is a pitch-perfect reflection of the critical transformative period in any young gay man’s life. It’s 1989, the Berlin wall is about to collapse, and the airwaves are full of the sounds of REM, The Cure and Jesus and Mary Chain. For 17-year-old Jarle, life is just about music and his ambition to create a great punk band. But when an intriguing new classmate (Yngve) arrives in school one day, he is forced to question his priorities, and deal with his burgeoning sexuality. Capturing the pure driving power of a youthful first love, this romantic drama is consistently fresh and charmingly honest.
