A bittersweet, warm 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, and The Cure. For 17-year-old Jarle, life is just about music and his ambition to create a great punk band. But when Yngve, an intriguing new classmate, 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 - the film excels most of its kind in the realistic depiction of teens struggling to find their individual voices.
