admirable work
29 July 2016 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

an adapted play. impressive performance of Paul Bettany. a great story about past, apartheid, friendship, fear, memories, paranoia, hate. it could be better is the basic observation. not really the best. because the aspect of puzzle, made by different pieces - childhood of Stephan and Joseph, battle, dialogues between Stephan and Emma, the meetings between Emma and Joseph are pillars of a special form of poetry. cold and worm, touching and bitter, a circle of sketches who gives to the viewer the opportunity to discover entire painting. it is an admirable film for the precise, delicate manner to translate in images the aspects of a battle , its deep roots, its victims. and one of the most important details remains the acting. Louise Lombard and Ariyon Bakare

  • who could be inspired choice for a biopic about Kwame Nkrueh - are


exactly the ideal choices for translate the message of characters. and the mixture of street and scene is one of great virtues of Ross Kettle's work.
