Sad but exciting story on growing up (in 1960's' Oslo)
9 October 2000 | by franko-11See all my reviews

Otto likes to play football (soccer), but most of the time, the other boys won't let him play. This is a both sad and sweet story about a young boy's growing pains. Confusion, affections, love, and hate blended into an exciting thriller/drama for young teens and adults alike. Good social description of the poorer parts of Oslo (and other Scandinavian cities) in the early 60's.
