Excellent, but dark without light relief
26 August 2012 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

Be prepared for a story which moves slowly and relentlessly forward. It is impossible to guess the direction in which it moves, so I shall not give any hint of the story line. The film is set in a very remote location in rural South Africa. For those who don't know the country, just seeing it in this film will be an education. The two main characters are sensitively drawn and the film is a wonderful example of the telling of a story that is probably uniquely South African, given our appalling apartheid history. I've characterized the film as "dark" and this extends to the director's choice of subdued coloring of the landscape scenes.

In summary, a film for those who want to understand South Africa better and who are prepared to be harrowed by the way in which a tragic story is told.
