Beautiful story, beautifully told
18 July 2015 | by martinhatchuelSee all my reviews

Die Wonderweker moved me. I was entranced by the cinematography, and by the rich, evocative images of bushveld life, and I felt I could smell and feel the air of the farm. It's also a beautiful story beautifully told.

Reviewer Mitch Berger http://www.imdb.com/user/ur35244565/ put it perfectly: "If there is any part of you that loves poetry; if you are a lover of nature and life; if you can spend hours staring at the mystery of moonlight and the beauty of an open unhindered plain, then I urge you, see this beautiful movie."

Another masterpiece from Katinka Heyns.
