How We Determine Our Grades

MSCOHEN says: Dec. 15, 2009

This Movie is a history lesson perfectly presented for the uninitiated.

Life today in South Africa is unstable which is the missing component in the film. Johannesburg is extremely dangerous and run down While Cape-town is relatively safe and beautiful.

For those who are not familiar with the area may be lulled into a false sense of security.

There is a wonderful message here about the ability of people to get along at the end of the day - however in the shade there is still anger.

This is a fabulous starter film on the subject for the young and for that reason I would give it 5 stars
