Kindness can overcome evil
14 January 2018 | by peter-legisaSee all my reviews

The movie treats the theme of child abuse: the aftermath of two horrific cases involving very young children. We see the professionals trying to help the victim with limited success.

We also witness the redeeming value of compassion and good deeds done by a woman from a poor neighbourhood in South Africa. The helper hardly has any money to spare, but has a big heart. She also wants to heal her own loss.

The depiction of life in the neighbourhood was quite interesting to me. I do no travel any more, so this film was a good substitute for personally exploring other worlds. Characters include a sympathetic detective and appear very convincing. The dialogues are also good. And what is most important, the movie shows that human kindness can overcome even absolute evil.
