True story of early South African History
19 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a fabulous movie. I just watched it again and was again so impressed by the filming and the actors. One of the things that struck me was the sense of watching artwork come alive. I would have loved to see more footage of the animals in the wild but I understand it is a story, not a documentary. On the video I have, the sound it not good, but that may just be my copy. Because of the very marked accents of the actors, to validate the time and place, it is also hard to understand if the accent is unfamiliar. But, even with those minor problems I found it an exceedingly satisfying movie. I also found the music used in the movie was very good. A movie that worked together. No jarring notes.
