Storyline

80's South African action comedy shot mostly in Afrikaans, one of South Africa's 11 indigenous languages. The main character, played by Arnold Vosloo, is a spoilt young man from a rich family, just finished with school, and conscripted to two years army service, as most defensable young men were forced to do in the 80's. The movie revolves around the young rebel's anti-establishment antics in frustrating his superiors, trying to avoid military service with his new-found comrades-at-arms and charming an inquisitive spiky-haired reporter, played by Janie du Plessis. Written by Tiaan Joubert

Have to find it.. cool South African movie..
1 October 2001 | by obselovSee all my reviews

I have seen "Boetie gaan border toe" (non-literal translation : Boetie goes to the war, literal translation: Boetie goes to the border.) yonks ago. 'though I loved it then, I'll have to rerate it when I find a local copy of the movie.

This movie is majorly in Afrikaans (A South African language), hence the title.

It's a fun movie in the mileu of the South African military activities in Angola a few decades ago.
