      Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jul 4, 2005 Full Review Daniel Eagan Film Journal International Despite ambitious themes and an earnest style, this is a predictable, listless film that has little to offer to mainstream audiences. Nov 8, 2003 Full Review David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor A flawed movie that doesn't always make narrative sense.

      Audience Member quite good South African drama Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Agonizingly slow, with no character development at all. The use of score is, while never obstructive, erratic. Very difficult to get through. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Kunne vært fantastisk, men faller for en del klisjeer og billige løsninger i handlinga og symbolikk. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member We are asked to identify with a character whose name we don't know, who has stolen the identity of a reverend who was only trying to help him, and we do it without hesitating. I watched it without subtitles, and it didn't matter. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member In trying so hard to be so deep, the film dug a shallow grave for itself.
