Review
Essentially an interacial love story betwixt two journalists set against the backdrop of The Truth and Reconciliation Commission in post-apartheid South Africa. There's enough dirt about police murders and torture in the apartheid state to keep whites squirming uncomfortably and enough healing and forgiveness to leave you feeling that race problems dissipate with a bit of a hug. Nevertheless Boorman is a skilled film maker and he manages the finer aspects of this well scripted movie without teetering into melodrama. Good, I liked it.
