South African comedy/romance comes of age!
19 February 2012 | by (Johannesburg, South Africa) – See all my reviews

I thought it was just great....lots of fun, great wit, stunning scenery and a clear sign to me that the SA movie industry is moving forward at pace...congratulations!! it's a must see, don't forget the biltong, popcorn and Koeksisters !! Anel Alexander and Nico Panagio were just the biz, and for someone who can't speak Afrikaans - thanks for the sub-titles ; )

I thoroughly enjoyed the humour and capers, and the Vrede en Lust wine farm setting did more than add an important dimension to the movie, it was a great advertisement for the beauty of SA...reminds me that it's time for another tour of the wine lands !!

Finally, and perhaps most important, its' becoming clear that South Africans are more willing than ever to poke fun at themselves, a sure sign of maturity....long may that continue !
