Goofs

When Rika is in the camps, sitting outside in the rain, she has a flashback to an earlier scene that took place shortly after Waldemar moved in and they were all dancing outside in the rain with her young children. In the Flashback, Sonny Boy (who's not born yet at that time) appears as a teenager dancing in the rain as well. See more »

ashamed for being white
29 December 2019 | by greetetesSee all my reviews

Beautiful but sad film. That racism is inconceivable. Black people are so much more beautiful than us. That bone structure, the vivid eyes are things we can only dream of and they are talented in many ways. It must be devastating to undergo that type of humiliation on a daily basis. I hope one day the world will be free of this shameful pestilence
