The first good Afrikaans film in the past 10 years, 3 June 2012
Author: helperzine from South Africa

If you simply want a movie with happy-chappy music and famous actors, then Platteland is for you.

But if you want to see a good Afrikaans movie, the first in the past 10 years!, then you should also see Platteland.

It has many mistakes, don't misunderstand. If all the songs were scrapped, then it would have been years better. These people are actors, not singers. And on every song you can hear how much their voices had to be rectified with computers. And the story has a few weak points. etc.

But this movie gives hope (Johanna!) for our industry.
