24 October 2007 | cybermeuf
| Wonderful and subtle movie
I just saw this film at the London Film Festival. It sold out in two days and they are putting an extra screening!

This film tell the touching journey of one woman trying to find the courage to be herself in an oppressive (but not overly so) marriage with a bit of help from another, wildly independent and free-spirited woman. The background is 1950s South Africa and its despicable apartheid policy. Throughout the film are stark reminders of what that meant for blacks, whites and the Indian community.

No clichés here, just wonderful brush-strokes forming a charming and riveting film.
