The real danger of biking


This short scene is pretty charming, but does serve as a stark reminder of one of the real perils of bicycling:  you may not be able to catch up to your girlfriend on the bus.

I remember Twist and Shout (Tro, håb og kærlighed in Danish) from around the time it came out in 1984. Really good but under-known coming-of-age film set in 1960s Copenhagen. I've always liked Danish director Bille August. His work usually has a certain atmosphere or quality that you can't quite put your finger on. Something about the muted color palette maybe.
