After school special from Zimbabwe

7/10
Author: John Seal from Oakland CA
5 June 2002

This cautionary tale from Zimbabwe was funded in part by the UK and US governments and is basically intended to warn Zimbabwean youth of the dangers of unprotected sex. It should be dull and preachy, but benefits from an earnest and attractive cast, especially Kasamba Mkumba and Leroy Gopal as the young star-crossed lovers. Football is only used metaphorically (the yellow card signifying a warning before you're sent off the field) and serves as bait to get the target audience interested. Nothing particularly new, but done extremely well.

great Movie

7/10
Author: bookertkilla from United Kingdom
6 April 2005

If these guys had enough money to spend making movie instead of wasting money making Glitter,Troy,Mr Bean and Alexander.This movie is great.Its set in Zimbabwe and its about a boy who has a baby with another girl but falls in love with another girl but he keeps a secret to the new girl hes fallen in love with and later he regrets it after the girl finds out.This is a great touching story.If this movie was made in the US it could have got an Oscar because these actors are talented and the writers of this movie were incredible.This movie shows that African cinema keeps improving and in ten years time it will be better than American cinema.
