Realistic of life in southern Africa
2 February 2014 | by (MACON, GEORGIA) – See all my reviews

This is by far, one of my favorite movies. I have watched this movie dozens of times. You feel the characters, and you can relate to their circumstances.

I thought the characters were talented African Actors, and I wish there was more information about the actors themselves. I love Neria's character, and her friend Connie. I truly love them both. Connie's Character as a loyal and kind friend, the perfect friend that we would all like to have. It was easy falling in love with the characters, and disliking some of them, as well. The only thing about the movie that was off-centered for me, was Ambuya's character. At the beginning she was hateful, and disliked her daughter-in-law Neria, but further into the movie, she supports her, with much kindness and understanding. It was as if she were two different characters.

This is not a movie everyone will like, this is a special movie, and only certain people will appreciate it. It is not meant to be just entertaining, it is meant to be more informative. I love the music (Tuku), the scenery, and the communal lands. I have traveled to Africa many times, but never to Zimbabwe. It would have been awesome to have traveled there during the time this movie was filmed.

Indeed, a very special movie.
