Fantastic South African production with great production value! This film is fictional and an ode to the men that fought and died. Also to the woman and children and the innocents that were affected by the atrocities of war.
Above all, the film lauds the courage, prowess and humanity intrinsic in the Recces.
Great South African actors like Greg Kriek, Christia Visser, Marius Weyers, Grant Swanby etc. with brilliant acting performances! Beautiful scenery, outstanding cinematography! The film is yet another reminder how many people are still hurting after the border war. Indeed as described: A dramatic story of great sorrow in a time of war but also of faith, family and the good in people! Will recommend to everybody!
