Treurgrond tells the painful story of a farming community in South Africa trying to survive the numerous farm attacks confronting farmers almost every day. These gruesome acts affect not just those closely related to the victims, but set in motion a chain of events. Amidst the pressure and anxiety increased by the growing number of farm murders, Lukas Van Staden tries to protect his family, his friends and his farm.
This was the first South African movie I ever watched. It presents a very important and rarely seen in the mainstream media problem of farm murders in South Africa. It contains very graphic scenes, but in that case they are necessary. These scenes contrast with the image of harmonious life in the farm community. Maybe the picture is too idealized, if so it was to increase the contrast. I liked the actors. Apart from the main characters I liked Shaleen Surtie-Richards playing the teacher.
