I watched a great South African movie on the weekend, Tsotsi.
“Set amidst the sprawling Johannesburg township of Soweto – where survival is the primary objective – TSOTSI traces six days in the life of a ruthless young gang leader who ends up caring for a baby accidentally kidnapped during a car-jacking.”
Tsotsi has a great, captivating storyline, that everyone in South Africa can relate to in some way or an other. With kwaito music blaring in the background of most scenes, it captures the raw energy that reflects the troubled state of Tsotsi’s mind. (I’d love to claim that comparison as my own, and look like some talented film critic, but i can’t, its from the Tsotsi website).
I strongly recommend every South African watch this movie. It proves to us that Charlize in Hollywood is not our only movie star. Praise must be given to our local actors and producers of South Africawood.
