Editorial Reviews

Morgan Freeman's highly charged directorial debut, "Bopha" is a Zulu word meaning "to arrest" or "to detain." For the oppressive regime, it's an act of empowerment. For the swelling crowds of activists, it's an outraged cry of protest, a cry whose real world impact is still felt today.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow May 26, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
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 May 12, 2007
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)

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bopha August 8, 2007
Format:DVD
It's a wonder that the movie it self did not receive an Oscar nomination, but I'm not going to exspress my opinion why. Danny Glover's performance in this movie was awesome and probably his best. Truly a must see.
