| A thrilling story of friendship
The South African film, Five Fingers for Marseilles, was a fantastic film that moved me with it emotional storyline and picturesque cinematography. The film features actor Vuyo Dabula who portrays the character Tau, who changes the course of his life as well as his friends when he murders two policemen as an adolescent in his shanty town referred to as "the railway". Tau returns to "the railway" after years of absence to see the ones that he loves. The character Tau is not an easy role, as throughout the movie he deals with heavy emotions such as guilt and shame. I think Dabula did an incredible job portraying this character who is on the outside a feared outlaw, but has a wounded core who searches for peace. Initially, I was apprehensive about a western, a genre I am not too familiar with, but I think the emotional character relationships bring this film a universality. I applaud director and writer team Michael Matthews and Sean Drummond on a beautiful film that I highly recommend.
