Five Fingers for Marseilles weaves together the exciting story of a South African freedom fighter named Tau (played by Vuyo Dabula). After a rescue mission goes horribly wrong, Tau disappears to start over and create a new name for himself. Years later, he returns home to find everything drastically changed. In an effort to survive, Tau must navigate his way through dangerous gangs and a corrupt police force, learning that sometimes even those closest to you don't have your best interest at heart. Five Fingers for Marseilles combines an exhilarating Western storyline and stunning landscape shots to narrate Tau's journey to confront the ghosts of his past. As someone that loved watching Western action movies with my dad, the film captivated my attention with intense fight scenes and a heart-wrenching narrative until the ending credits finished rolling. If you're searching for an intoxicating story with a surprising finish, this movie should be at the top of your list.
