Thandiwe Adjewa: [Tired of hearing the other girls making jokes about her being of African dissent, she gets up from watching TV to leave the room, but not before intentionally bumping into the table the record they were listening to was on to make it skip and anger them]
[Calmly]
Thandiwe Adjewa: Oh, I'm sorry. I must've slipped on a banana peel.

Truly Romantic
21 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

The only reason I even watched this movie (at first) is because there was nothing else on tv, and I saw from the commercial that Nicole Kidman was in it. I'd seen Noah Taylor in the Tomb Raider movie and loved his dorky, scatterbrained performance. So I sat down and watched it. I was amazed. This movie is GREAT for a romantic person. The difficulty of the situation in Africa, combined with sad romance, repression, and brutality was enough to make me feel the emptiness that comes with the longing for true love that every girl and boy feels at one point or another. I rented the movie on video, and was surprised to find that very little was cut out; just a few slightly racier moments, and a foul word or two, plus one scene at the end was double-shot to have Thandie Newton in a bra and panties rather than naked. Rent it and watch if you're a longing romantic, or if you want to be one. Ah, love is such exquisite pain.
