I really wanted to like it but alas... I didn't.
15 February 2020 | by uv10-301-439715See all my reviews

I was a bit skeptical when I heard the Afrikaner but I plowed through... The main actress was pretty and made me want to watch further. I hoped that her journey would be interesting. I ignored the quality of the acting which is... uneven...? Or is that too generous? I also ignored the bad music... small budget movies usually cannot afford good soundtracks... ...the scenes shot in South Africa are set on the family farm so... ok... no black people. But then she gets to Paris and no brown or black people in the streets or in the subway? Really? That's when I decided to stop the movie. The chemistry wasn't there & white washing killed it for me. Don't get me wrong I skipped around to the end because I am a sucker for happy endings (no matter how bleached out the movie is) but there was just too much bad to make up for the good... in my humble opinion.
