Great, underwatched film.
3 April 2001 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Stanley Baker was a vastly underrated actor. This film about a barrister faced with the task of defending a murderer who within his own cultural framework is hardly committing murder, is gripping, poignant and thoughtful Based on the days of apartheid in South Africa, Baker defends a man who took revenge on a man who killed one of his children to enhance his prowess as a stick fighter. The peek into the violent world of the Xhosa is very well done and the attack created by Baker in defense of his client is excellent. This is an excellent film, undershown and underseen. If you have the chance to see it, do so. You will be informed as well as entertained by this engaging tale based on actual cases (Yes. There were several of these revenge killings based on witchcraft that appeared in South African courts).
