impressive performances
14 September 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A powerful film. For performances and cinematography, first. A religious story. It is not an evidence, only the feeling across entire film. A surprising force of acting of the two young lead actors. The photography, the Afrikaans itself, the bitter atmosphere, the game of appearences as solid virtues. The only problem, maybe the story who is more a sketch for give to the viewer the chance to define the moments, to put together the reactions of characters or to judge.
