better than expected
10 June 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Actually, I expected a cheap military comedy with some lame jokes. I was positively surprised! It's more a growing-up movie about young recruits from different social strata, having to learn a new way of life, mutual respect and endurance until they are sent off to the battlefield. The daily life's funny scenes and little tragedies are portrayed believable and you can feel with these young men from the start. A bit of social criticism is in it too, regarding the action of Boetie's stepfather... The play of the main cast is convincing, and watching Arnold Vosloo in his first movie is just great. So at least his fans should watch this, with or without knowing Afrikaans.
