A Must See
5 October 2016 | by raywaringSee all my reviews

Super thought provoking movie, excellent story telling which keeps your full attention to the end. I found the story could be applied to any society proving whatever race , humans are basically the same. A love story with the trials and tribulations of the characters portrayed. I thought the acting was of a high calibre worthy of any cast in the world and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the casting.The director definitely produced a masterpiece.

The location was stunning and gave a real sense of the problems living in Lethoso, the poverty and social tradition was all to apparent and was portrayed in a realistic way.
