A feel-good movie with surprising depth
4 August 2018 | by melodypond-20038See all my reviews

A movie supposedly based on the true love story of its two protagonists. This movie is a great change of pace from the Afrikaans rom-coms released in recent years. It had a much deeper plot than I expected but I had a stupid smile on my face by the time the credits rolled. The actors are very charismatic and make you root for their characters from the start. The 70s soundtrack is great as well.
