Outstanding movie -- funniest kids on earth!, 9 August 2002
Author: terrycashin from Abbotsford, Canada

There is a lot of story in this movie, but the thread that follows the two little black kids who get separated from their father is hilarious. Imagine this--a 3 year old and a 4 year old, speaking Xhosa(?) through the whole movie to each other--and yet YOU the viewer know every word they say! No voice-over! No sub-titles, just exceedingly clever script-writing combined with brilliant direction of these two kids.

I wish I could afford to buy the two Gods... movies, but until then I keep an eye on TV listings and never miss an opportunity to watch them again and again.
