One of the better South African films
16 May 2012 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

There is a lot to love about this film. So much so that it inspired me to write my first review. The historical aspect brought back strong memories as I'm from the era and lived it. Very accurately portrayed and didn't hold back at all. Perfect cinematography. Two performances of exceptional note. Stelio Savante as the Major is effortless and a scene stealer. Matshepo Malema is magnetic. She draws you in and will break your heart. Strange that she isn't credited on here. The music score although grand at times is very memorable. I didn't understand the editing cuts to black aka a TV movie cutting to a commercial break. And I thought the narration was unnecessary as it reflected exactly what was on screen. Unless that was to educate American and European markets. I rate this a 9 out of 10 and can proudly say it ranks high on the list of South African films.
