A rare 10 goes to this film.

I will be candid and divulge my biases. I am a person with AIDS and cancer. I am 55 years old. I have seen most of the AIDS movies, made for better or worse over the years. I have no particular associations with Africa. A rare 10 vote goes to this film because it is, in its absolute simplicity, a perfect primer on the effects of AIDS on plain and simple lives. There are no greeting card sunsets. There are no weepy hand-holding scenes between the rich parent/spouse/sibling and "the victim" on the lawn of a palatial estate in America. There is exhausting repetition of the details of hard lives. There is the mean ignorance of people who see themselves as unaffected and superior. There is the sudden dependence of the counter dependent and unfaithful husband. There is the forgiveness by the infected wife, who already has too much to bear as an impoverished woman and mother. There is her faith, her dedication, her love to the end in a relationship that has brought her own early death. And there is the stark and indifferent beauty of Africa itself, photographed by a lover's eye. There are no surprises here for anyone, unless he has lived with his head up his Developed-World assets. There is just a map to better understanding of a largely shared human condition.

Poignant, Moving Portrayal of the SA Tragedy

I saw this movie on a plane from Johannesburg to New York. I found it riveting and intensely sad. The acting was superb and I felt the film really captured the tragedy that is the SA AIDS epidemic today. The music added to the poignancy of the story. I thought the film really brought home the SA situation in a way that no newspaper or TV documentary every could or ever has. I sobbed through this movie at times as the portrayal was so real, and the director managed to capture village life so excellently. Kudos to the writer, producer and the actors for creating a superb film - a real feather in the cap of the SA film world. This is a world class film that everyone should see!

A quality film

As a South African, this is the first time I've seen any media portray the HIV/Aids crises in our country in a way that makes it real, without political agenda or moralizing the issue. For that I commend the film. What also impressed me was the film's simplicity and the fact that it was unpredictable in its character portrayal.Cinematographically, it is definitely one of the best movies ever to have come from our shores. Then there is the brilliant acting by Khumalo. The film is not without fault, but it shows that our film industry is capable of producing quality films. Just a pity that most South African audiences do not give the local industry the support it needs.
