Nature , friendship and courage
Duma reminded me of one of my favourite books “Rules of the Bone ‘. It is a movie about friendship between a boy living in South Africa and a cheetah named Duma. At first the story line may seem a bit simple, but then you will notice all the serous issues Duma deals with. The role of the young Xan is played by Alexander Michaeletos he has really cute English accent which made me seek some more information about him. I found out that he is leaving in a farm in South Africa like the character he plays so well in the movie real you can almost sense his feelings and fears. Duma is also a fine example of a coming out of age movie I would like to quote some of the dialogue:
“Change, yeah. That’s what happens. All the time. The little boy that left home……is not the little boy that is with me now, eh? See? Change.”
Duma is a movie you would enjoy watching with your younger friends and relatives they will like it and learn many things from it.
The cinematography is brilliants you will enjoy the beautiful nature scenes or the animal scenes I almost felt like I was watching a documentary about animals at times so believable were those scenes.
