though not an absolute winner, an engaging and original movie nonetheless. this interesting south african film is worth seeing if only to view a more realistic environment as opposed to hi tech and over glossy hollywood hokum! the characters are believable and the script depicts situations which are well meaning and certainly make a change to the usual cinematic drivel currently on offer. the central black character is a well educated and classically trained actor who decides to go 'undercover' so as he may be able to win an audition to play a ruthless mobster for a major south african movie. i particularly enjoyed watching those numerous soweto shantytowns! worth seeing.
