"Meet the Beatles! Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with their Ed Sullivan Show appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen. A Hard Day's Night, in which the bandmates play slapstick versions of themselves, captured the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever. Directed with raucous, anything-goes verve by Richard Lester and featuring a slew of iconic pop anthems, uncluding the title track, "Can't Buy Me Love," "I Should Have Known Better," and "If I Fell," A Hard Day's Night, which reconceived the movie musical and exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, is one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time."--Back cover

"Eine sensible Londoner Maniküre, die sich in einer von Männern dominierten Welt hilflos und bedroht fühlt, wird allmählich das Opfer von Wahnvorstellungen. ... Von einer atmosphärisch dichten Milieubeschreibung ausgehend, macht sich die Inszenierung zunehmend den Blickwinkel der Heldin zu eigen und verfremdet den banalen Alltag zu einem Inferno schockierender Visionen. Ein handwerklich perfekter Psycho-Thriller, der mit Elementen der Horror-Dramaturgie arbeitet und dem Zuschauer seine eigene voyeuristische Perspektive vor Augen führt." [film-dienst.de]
