5.0 out of 5 stars What could a black cop do under partheid? 1 Mar 2007
1980, South Africa. It is the time of the rebellion of all townships against Afrikaans and apartheid. The originality of this film is not to only look at the savage brutality of the South African whites but to look at the reality in a small township just before this rebellion and to explore the human and race relations existing there and how they are in the process of changing with a new generation of people arriving on the scene, though still in schools. It is in these schools that it will all start in the form of a refusal to speak Afrikaans and to answer any request, order or assignment given to them in Afrikaans. The film shows how the growing consciousness is crossing the family of the main black cop in the township, because law and order is in the hands of the South African Police whose officers are white but whose rank and file and even non-commissioned officers are black. It thus becomes the son against the father, but also the mother against the father, though the mother is the maid of the the main white officer of the police station and the husband is the main non-commissioned officer of the police station. But some people from the special branch arrive one day and the whole situation will explode, because they arrived, partly, because their first heroic act is the death of an older militant who hanged himself in his cell, with his hands tied up behind his back. But they also arrive on that day because their intelligence is telling them that the younger generation is listening to the militants that are not dead like Biko or in prison like Mandela or in exile like Mbeki.

5.0 out of 5 stars Danny Glover is a Hit 30 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film explores the relation ship between a father & son. The father is a Sergeant in the South African Police Force who has aspirations for his son to follow in his shoes and become an officer in the SAP. This is during the Apartheid Regime in South Africa. The son doesn't want to join the Brutal police force instead he becomes involved in organising peaceful protests & the Freedom movement. Watch this movie if you want to see the Rest of this story unfold.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow 26 May 2001
By "xxcometxx21" - Published on
I normally do not like movie like this, I am more into teen flicks, comedys, etc. but we watched Bopha! in school and it has most of our class in tears by the end. We were studying Africa and yes we had heard all about what happened but nothing compares to seeing this movie. It made even the sort of heartless kids in my class feel strongly about the subject, it put our lives into perspective. I think that this is a very powerful and moving movie and that everyone should see it at least once. but dont take my word for it, im just a kid, see it urself

5.0 out of 5 stars Terribly cruel but the bitter truth 12 May 2007
By Arnona Weiler - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is like a documentary. It is the truth about a terribly viscious

period in South Africa. it ends with the cry 'Amandla' which means

'Courage' - there is a wonderful documentary called 'Amandla' which is

the next stage in the Apartheid history. Worth seeing! ( Dvd)

5.0 out of 5 stars Provides interesting and often disturbing insight into this time period 1 Oct 2010
By Indian Prairie Public Library - Published on
This film takes place in South Africa in 1980, in the midst of the Apartheid uprisings. It focuses on a particular African American family. Danny Glover plays the husband, a policeman, who is employed by the government. Unbeknownst to him, his teenage son starts to engage in anti-apartheid activities. It provides interesting and often disturbing insight into this time period, and how it affected the residents of South Africa.
