Have to find it.. cool South African movie..
1 October 2001 | by (Johannesburg, South Africa) – See all my reviews

I have seen "Boetie gaan border toe" (non-literal translation : Boetie goes to the war, literal translation: Boetie goes to the border.) yonks ago. 'though I loved it then, I'll have to rerate it when I find a local copy of the movie.

This movie is majorly in Afrikaans (A South African language), hence the title.

It's a fun movie in the mileu of the South African military activities in Angola a few decades ago.
