A political prophecy from South Africa in the form of a comedy
15 June 2005 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

On one hand, this is a nice comedy. The basic situation (winning the jackpot and just falling into some years of coma) is simple but good enough for starting the comedy. Waking up in a completely different world - you can imagine how strange it could be. But on the other hand, this is something like a political prophecy as well. Falling in coma in the Apartheid regime and waking up in the world of Nelson Mandela, you can believe it is much more than a simple Hollywood-like comedy. So the movie is wonderful, it has an atmosphere you really can't forget. When first I saw it, Mr. Frederik Willem De Klerk was the president of South Africa. Well, it was already in the air that Mr. Mandela would follow him in such position. We in Eastern Europe felt the same 'wind of change' at that time. I think I don't have to tell more about this movie - just try to borrow it or buy it if it is available on VHS/DVD (I saw it on TV) and you'll see what I was talking about.
