powerful
3 September 2018 | by tstrasnovSee all my reviews

Powerful movie about the depths of human depravity and the difficult path towards justice, forgiveness and overcoming racism. Unfortunately today's situation in South Africa reminds us all that another apartheid is about to take place - this time against white farmers who are in minority and whose murders are taking places with the majority black government condoning genocide. Sad story that we shall have to re-live if the world doesn't act now. If not I imagine another movie will be made in a few years this time with actors acting in reversed roles....
