SilveRain has been described as the pan-African film of the decade. Casting from 5 African countries and shooting in 2, the film depicts a typical African setting where the gaps in the class strata is so wide. The movie straddles both entertainment and social advocacy so beautifully that one wonders why more of such movies are not done, especially in areas where this is so needed. Africa has such rich stories that the world is eager to hear about and SilveRain does just that! SilveRain can be described as a Cinderella story with soul. I particularly like the market scenes in the movie. You learn so much about the culture of the environment just by watching the movie. The film also has a reality tone to it. It pulls you in and spits you out so to speak. The main actors also give a really good performance. It is interesting how you can sense the different accents from the different parts of Africa. It is potpourri of accents and textures. This is really a very beautiful story, nicely told.
