Storyline

South Africa, Free State region, isolated stronghold to the Afrikaans white ethnic minority culture. In this conservative farming territory obsessed with strength and masculinity, Janno is different, secretive, emotionally frail. One day his mother, fiercely religious, brings home Pieter, a hardened street orphan she wants to save, and asks Janno to make this stranger into his brother. The two boys start a fight for power, heritage and parental love.

User Reviews

 
depressing, tense, beautifully shot.
4 January 2020 | by luis_sklhSee all my reviews

I watched the film last April in Barcelona at a festival. It was outstanding and has stayed in my head ever since. a landscape of wide fields, huge cliffs, dark clouds and the brutal waves of the deep blue sea form the setting for a quiet but extremely tense story. The film is unique and poetic. The shots are beautiful.
