Actually a good effort in cinematography
3 August 2017 | by pietclausenSee all my reviews

Knowing that this movie was made on a shoestring, the end result is very pleasing. The film shot entirely in South Africa by local talent and local crew shows a maturity over and above previous film making in this country.

Beautiful scenery, excellent photography and a pleasant story all come together in Actually Quite a lot. An effort which compares very well with productions made overseas.

If you enjoy drama and romance with a twist, this South African production surprised me and is a movie for you.
