A great story! Two bad the Hollywood doesn't make them like that anymore.
13 March 2002 | by (Oceana, West Virginia) – See all my reviews

Jit tells the story of a young boy who seems to have fallen in love for the first time. The girl is from a richer family than he is from, so he spends an enormous amount of time and energy trying to convince both her and her father that he is worthy. She is already has a boyfriend, another man who has a shady reputation, but he has lots of money. It also goes against the stereotype most Americans have of Africa. You don't see any of Africa's wildlife...the city looks like any city in a third world country. What interesting is the influences of Britain (since Zimbabwe was once part of the British empire), and cultural influences of the U.S. world market. The star of the film happily sips a drink with a Coca-cola loga in the background for example. The film is in English. And we can't forget the music! The soundtrack is loaded with Africa's modern tunes, not tribal rants and drum beats. A great film. But it is hard to find. If you see it, grab it.
