continuity is good, Jamaicans can relate to the real topics.
30 November 2002 | by alzinam2See all my reviews

The politics of the government coupled with the Rastafari is both amusing and interesting folklore (if you please). The acting did not appear fictitious, but native Jamaicans can relate to the rustic implications of obeah. I would love to own it personally.
