I must admit, I am not a very emotional person when it comes to movies but this particular movie reduced me to tears very soon. I suppose that this ale is very real to me, and it is a natural occurrence where I come from but I still cannot come to terms with the AIDS disease. It is a weak virus but the effects are not; so many children are orphaned every day because of it and the full amounts are still not known. I hope that this beautiful film will raise the awareness of this disease and that everyone will sit up and take notice. This movie, I feel, has portrayed a very real side to the AIDS epidemic and I hope that it will bring both clarity and the urge to help to all who watch it. I congratulate Darrel Roodt on his directing and Leleti Khumalo for her awesome performance.
