Great film about a sensitive subject.
28 October 2006 | by (Croydon, Victoria, Australia) – See all my reviews

Have just finished watching this film, which upset me greatly. Have also been to South Africa twice, around the time this film is set.

It is certainly hard-hitting, and the opening scenes tend to 'set the scene'. The slow but steady increase of pace hardly allows a break, and there are certainly few light moments.

Will never be able to view Nigel Hawthorne the same again. He came across as a very twisted individual, and I found myself disliking him more each time he appeared.

Totally agree with Steve-thomp's articulate and well thought-out comments.
