Let's face it: the film is plain boring. It's a shame really, because the idea, the message behind it is superb and so very important for South Africa. The country simply can't go on without reconciliation - and forgiveness. But what an utterly pretentious and vapid execution! What a missed opportunity!
The movie might look good at international film festivals, where prizes are given for good intentions and political correctness. And where they make allowances for South African cinema as if it weren't one of the oldest and most established in the world. But films like Tsotsi, Jerusalema or even White Wedding are much more deserving of accolades than this dragging exercise in well-intentioned film-making.
