Very good and important movie
4 September 2017 | by olenkacongataSee all my reviews

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.
