I didn't know much about apartheid in South Africa, so this movie was a learning experience. It is well made and Euzhan Palcy (director) does an excellent job. The native vocal music is terrific too.

Not easy to watch, but remember that this is what happened in South Africa, and we need to remember, just as we need to always remember the horror and injustice of the Holocaust.

Interesting to those who wants to know more about the apartheid days in SA. It is not an easy watch due to the brutality of one of the special police forces, including torture and gruesome killing. Aging Marlon Brando has a brief role in the film too.

Somewhat difficult to watch, given the violence. It was a good movie. It could be a true story.

A very good movie but, understandably given the subject-matter, a lot violence.
