The New Age Western we Needed
4 October 2018 | by dakotamillertorchlightSee all my reviews

Five Fingers for Marseilles is a film about a town and five friends who swear to protect it. The story follows Tau, played by Vuyo Dabula, who runs away from the problems facing the town and returns years later to find out how his absence has changed the town and the people that he used to know. With a new threat facing the town Tau must confront this problem in order to redeem himself and save those he used to hold dear. As director Michael Matthews' debut feature he has done an outstanding job with this film. Using the tropes of the western genre, the natural beauty of South Africa, and his own flare and twists he has created a fantastic start to his directorial career. It kept me entertained and intrigued the entire time and left me in a satisfied mood for the rest of the day. From the stellar performances to the beautiful cinematography this film entertained me and I highly recommend it to any fans of westerns or fans of film in general.
