Beautiful! Looking forward to see more films like these
2 May 2016 | by kpdestinySee all my reviews

I just watched this movie last night as I was waiting for this movie to be released for two months. And it is a very touching story of a forbidden romance. The cinematography is indeed, very good as well as the costumes. I felt as if I was in 1979, South Africa, speaking from someone who is living in SA and had parents living in those times. The authenticity is there as it was simple times back then. The opening scenes, some of the performances, and screenplay could be better. But I think the film succeeds in its authenticity, cinematography, the climax, and the story. I can still recall the secret house at the lake where they escaped to, just so that they can get to know each other more. A connection was built between them, based on their similarities. I would have liked to see more characterization between them if possible, but that could've extended the screen time. Overall, this is a great movie with beautiful themes and story. I would definitely like to see more movies like this, as it is not very common. And I'll be waiting for the video to come out, to purchase a copy!
