    ★★★

    Basically a feminist movie, in which men almost play no role other than benefactors. A very interesting movie about women and their possibilities to achieve something on their own.

    ★★★

    It's hard to call this a movie and not just a TV special but for what it's worth, it's fine.

    ★★★

    The Beatles are truly the music that accompanied me for most of my life, so this movie in theory is made for me. And the music is used very well and there are many entertaining scenes. But the movie so much stays on the surface that it's annoying, taking shortcuts where you really want to see more but then also lingers on details that never reveal a clear relevance (e.g. his teeth after the accident). The rom-com narrative also doesn't really add up.

    ★★★½

    It's full of brilliant ideas that are wonderfully executed but I was somewhat annoyed by its frenetic and loud scenes.
