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.

Customer Reviews

Danny Glover's performance in this movie was awesome and probably his best.
Karl K. Rashid Sr.
It made even the sort of heartless kids in my class feel strongly about the subject, it put our lives into perspective.

I wish someone would get their act together and try promoting their work without using my name.

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

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)

Format: DVD
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.Read more ›

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.
