| A really great film!
A great film about adolescence. I wish more people could see this film, because it is a true masterpiece. It isn't just a pleasant movie about growing up. It contains some truly powerful and painful scenes. Not with blood and violence, but with small and subtle means Bille August portrays the clash between good and evil when boys grow up to be men. The sequel, Tro, håb og kærlighed or Twist and shout is also a good movie, but it is somewhat superfluous because Zappa contains everything that a film about young people should contain. Quite a lot of danish films are very good when it comes to portraying the good and bad of growing up. Most of Bille Augusts early films are good, but other directors have made great films like Tree of Knowledge (1981), Dance of the Polar Bears (1990), Den Store badedag (1991) or for the younger kids Guldregn (1988). In my opinion though, Zappa is by far the strongest movie of them all.
