They were men...
11 November 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Brave men. Difficult mission. We need this film and the others by Millin available in the US... We are critically short of historical films about anything that happened in Southern Africa (unless you count the allegedly historical Shaka Zulu, Zulu, and Zulu Dawn)

Millin was a genius, not often credited here in the US...
