One of the best South African movies ever
16 July 2004 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of seeing Forgiveness last night. Everyone involved in this production, should be very proud of their achievements. The writing is solid and clever, it's beautifully filmed and for once the South African locations are captured and used to enhance the story. I loved the shots of the sea. The strong cast handles the challenging subject matter very well. Arnold Vosloo's and the rest of cast deserves a special mention. I suppose South Africa still has a lot of political/apartheid stories to tell and these stories should be told, but I can't wait for us to move on and start telling stories and making movies about the many other facets of this beautiful country!

Hopefully this is the start of many more to come.
