Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
One of the most successful Danish films of the '70s was Mig og Charly (1978), a charming story of friendship between teenagers from different worlds. Charly og Steffen again stars Allan Olsen as the typically bold Copenhagen working-class boy and Kim Jensen as the suburban Steffen. This time the two get in trouble with a gang of Hell's Angels, but some of the potency of the original seems to have been lost with the change of directors (Morten Arnfred helmed Mig og Charly, while his assistant, Henning Kristiansen, directed the more commonplace sequel). The two films made a star of the pixyish Olsen, arguably the only newcomer to enjoy such widespread public acceptance in the 1970s.
