My review

I knew the story and when I saw the first half hour or so of the film, I thought to myself that this was going to be a dud. The story moved too quickly and I wanted more detail. However, I soon found out why. So much more story had to be crammed into the timeslot and this perhaps, (along with not the most brilliant acting in my view), was the reason the reason the film was not as successful as it might have been. Still it was a good watch and certainly had its share of moving moments. For those who are too young to know much about apartheid, as well as those who believe they are versed in its problems, it is a movie worth seeing. It will make you think again about whether you see people as you are or as they are.
