A simple, clear story of the revolution in Zimbabwe
31 October 2006 | by (Macomb, Illinois, USA) – See all my reviews

This film involves a little narration and tells a good story. Even though it's fiction, this film really does a good job at setting up the situation of the revolution. The events are portrayed very honestly, including those parts that make the revolutionary fighters look foolish. I am impressed by the detailed perspective of the young girls' journey and struggles; and also I'm impressed at how the film has a message, but it's not shoved in our faces. I would highly recommend this film for anyone who is interested in Africa, international relations, history, politics...pretty much anyone!

P.S. This film might be hard to find...I saw it in an African film festival at my university. You might have to look for this film if you're interested, but the search is worth it!
