Charly and Me (Mig og Charly) (1978)
11 December 2000 | by (los angeles, california) – See all my reviews

A lost Danish film, extremely outstanding. Two adolescents become fast and unlikely friends, one a "normal town boy" the other a motorbike ruffian. Similar themes to the later Paul Verhoven's "Spetters". Wide-eyed teenagers in the changing Europe, as puberty changes them. If you can find a print, it's really worth seeing.
