South Africa 2007
Seen 5 March 2009
There is discrimination based on your skin colour, prejudices against women, traditional community values that are being challenged and a budding relationship between two women. Miriam, the supposedly docile wife and mother finds her inner strength to move on with her life while the feisty woman restaurateur, Amina, gains a foothold in love.
The director manages to helm the film on an even keel and there are explosive moments, but the quieter parts leave a larger imprint.
