Sensitive look at today's South Africa
20 August 2003 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

An intelligent, emotional, sensitive movie about back-country South Africa. I saw the movie while living there for 6 months in 2002-2003. It's a post-Apartheid movie that touches on how an outsider sees S.Africa, how some local whites cling to past ways even though other local whites wish to move on with their lives. There is suspense, love, drama, great writing and cinematography. Unfortunately, the ending sinks to unreasonable depths of human stupidity, best leave before the end. Otherwise, a very likable movie.
