Bille August, Denmark, 1984

107 min.DK/FeatureYouth films

A follow-up on Zappa, 1983, but working fully as a stand-alone, Bille August's Twist & Shout picks up the character of Bjørn when he has turned 17 and finds himself pushed into an engagement to rich kid Kirsten. It is Anna from the other side of the tracks that he loves, but he loses her when she has an illegally performed abortion. Intertwined is the story of friend Erik's troubled family relations.
