Glorious film
23 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

This is a lovely film. The photography is lovely. The lighting is lovely. The acting is powerful. The story is intense. Set in the last few years of apartheid, it captures the cruel racism of the white South African government, the helplessness of black people and the beauty of the land and its people. Yet it's not good guys and bad guys. There are some very decent whites and some very horrid blacks. Although there are some scenes of ghastly violence --- including the barbaric "necklacing" of a black woman by other blacks --- at no time does the violence seem gratuitous or to be put there for sensationalism or shock value. South Africa was (and still is) a very violent place and this film reflects that graphically. A pity that so few people seem to have watched this film. It is superb by every standard.
