      Gabi Zietsman Channel24 (South Africa) Jewel had good intentions, but the filmmakers fell victim to their own vision, losing the film's voice in the process. Rated: 2/5 Oct 1, 2022 Full Review Andrea Beach Common Sense Media This is a tension-filled, almost gothic drama with some fine points, but also some problems that make it a bit of a mixed bag. Rated: 3/5 Jul 19, 2022 Full Review Rahul Desai News9 Live (India) Like most of these homegrown films, an interesting concept is marred by unpolished execution. Rated: 2/5 Jul 19, 2022 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation This South African film, which never really grapples with the Sharpeville Massacre history or its invented love story, contents itself with immersing characters in the river for their epiphanies and encounters with fate. Rated: 2/4 Jul 19, 2022 Full Review Radhika Menon Decider Though there are some interesting ideas about race and forgiveness at play, the film doesn’t tie the knot on the message. Jul 12, 2022 Full Review M.N. Miller Ready Steady Cut Let us hope Ugah and the wonderful Nqobile Khumalo are given another opportunity, with greater control, to tell a story with the same unique lens with greater scope. Rated: 2.5/5 Jul 9, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
