Too many will never see this film
27 October 2006 | by dwalkup_88See all my reviews

After watching this film you might wish the entire world just watched it with you. I sure felt that way. I saw the film at the Traverse City Film Festival without knowing much about it going in and was completely blown away. It tells the story of Jesus Christ in modern day South Africa, and beyond the gut-wrenching day-to-day experiences of these people, the use of colors and music all combine to create a truly amazing film. There were many great performances, but I was particularly impressed and moved by the performance of Pauline Malefane, who played the character paralleling Mary, Mother of Jesus. I intend to see U-Carmen because of how moving her performance was in Son of Man. Mark Donford-May (writer/director/producer of both films) has found a goldmine of talent, fortunately he recognizes this and appears to doing his best to share it with the rest of the world - if they will only open their eyes to see it, or even be given the opportunity to do so.
