A gripping film with beautiful visuals and an eerie undertone.
22 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

With captivating performances and breathtaking cinematography the film holds a silent intensity that draws the viewer into an emotional journey.

Promised Land carries an eerie undertone that the viewer shares with the main character as he unravels the dark secrets of the small Afrikaner community he tries to escape from.

A truly emotional and gripping experience that builds up to an ending that is both shocking and beautiful. This film brings to life the images of photographer Roger Ballen who portrays certain Afrikaners as a deeply disturbed community inhibited by old fashioned traditions and xenophobic tendencies. It is definitely worth a watch!
