Proudly South African
15 February 2012 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

South African's are known for rugby, cricket, good wine and many other things, but let's be honest, we've never really been "known" for our acting.

I am an AVID cinema-goer and I can honestly say that Material is one of the most beautiful film's I have seen in a long time.

As I was sitting in the movie house I found my heart SWELL with pride to the point where it almost burst right out of my chest! These guys did all the work and yet there in my seat, I felt so proud to be called South African.

And to top it off, there are a number of scenes that are absolutely hilarious! I can't remember the last time I laughed from my belly.

The Material movie is an ABSOLUTE MUST-SEE!
