Worth watching. They tell an incredibly important story well.

The story of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission should be required viewing as far as I'm concerned. The actors and director clearly care about this story and they have told it well. I'm a white South African with family that were in the police and military during this time. I think this movie is incredibly well done. Don't worry about the camera angles and makeup; just watch, enjoy, and maybe even learn something.

My favourite exchange:
"Do you know what Paradise Lost is?"
"A nightclub?"
"No, you clutch plate. It's a poem... about me!"

Cheers,
Pierre

Not as bad as the reveiws...

Ideally I'd rate this 7.5 out 10, i've noticed all the negative reveiws (it's not that bad) , to be honest Eric Banas moustache and Forest Whittakers nose were a 7/10 alone. Directed by the great Roland Joffe (The Mission, The Killing Fields & City of joy) this is about the relationship between Banas rascist inmate and Whittakers sympathetic Archbishop Tutu, just after Nelson Mandela became President, this deals with deep and bitter resentment,and is at times brutally violent, it's about 20 mins overlong but it's still a decent film.

A Must-Watch!

This is a brilliant movie about a very sensitive subject. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was a truly courageous and noble initiative to deal with the atrocities committed under apartheid in South Africa. Like the last reviewer, I'd probably give the movie a 7.5/10. That this movie was filmed in South Africa with South African actors (besides Forest Whitaker and Eric Bana, of course) impressed me even more! The performance by Thandi Makhubele (Mrs. Marobe) in the scene where she confronts one of her daughter's killers towards the end was particularly poignant. One can imagine such scenes playing out in real life during the TRC hearings.
