Movie Review

This was a good movie that surprised us with the way it manages to merge context, form and history. We were not left unmoved, and we do recommend it.

The storyline is strong in its originality and is successful in keeping us intrigued. The mystical hints add to its entertainment value.

As for the scenography, it is interesting – we were basically teleported to South Africa in a style reminiscent at times of the Dogme95 form.

It is a relatively well rounded movie, its strength being a good plot.
