Storytelling at its best
24 March 2019 | by robyn_palmerSee all my reviews

The film is visual eyecandy. With only a few pages of dialogue, the pictures are left to paint the words, and boy do they do a good job. With a mixture of comedy, drama, tragedy and thriller, this film will take you on an emotional journey of South Africa's past.
