One of the best Afrikaans films I've seen.
28 June 2018 | by paulclaassenSee all my reviews

The film that re-introduced musicals to the Afrikaans market, having been absent for so long. In general, the entire cast was good, and the photography excellent. The musical scenes were perfectly choreographed and a pleasure to watch. The humor and drama was well balanced to bring one of the greatest Afrikaans films ever made.
