A modern adaptation of Anton Chekhov's THE SEAGULL. A famous actress pays summer visits to her brother and her son on a country estate. On one occasion, she brings her lover, a successful writer, along, leading to familial conflict, heartbreak and tragedy.
There is no point to this film. It should have stayed an average stage production. The adaption to film is unnecessary as it does not make full use of the possibilities in the medium. The text is average at most and characters are speaking just for the sake of saying something, all while actually saying nothing. Poor and predictable character development and storyline, especially since it is not going anywhere.
Trying to be an art film, but failed misroubly. Maybe it is the intend since the movie is about bad writers and actors trying to break the mold.
Was painful to watch and probably Christiaan Olwagen's worst work for screen.
Top 5 worst Afrikaans movies.
