Great retelling of a South African classic
30 September 2019 | by ameliaamcphersonSee all my reviews

Fiela se kind is based on the novel by Dalene Mathee and a real South African classic. The original screenplay needed to be updated for newer audiences and I think this version was great. Scenery is spectacular and the screenplay remains historically accurate. Great acting all round and a gentle reminder of our past.
