Start to finish this film has you on the edge of your seat. From the plotting of the prisoners to the seemingly mundane day to day activities of the prison regime itself. The austere setting of an Apartheid-era prison really hits home when you consider this was only a generation or so ago. There is conflict amongst the prisoners themselves too. Not only are they racially segregted, but they are also set apart from white non-political prisoners. Within this subset there emerges tensions but also a sense of camaraderie that we see throughout. Outstanding cinema.
im not that easy tensed, but this touched a string of nerve
Its a dramathriller from true life, the apharteid era of south africa, anc and white political supporters, going to prison for equal rights. while there theyre fed up with the prison system and tries to make a way to escape. how and when its done i shall not spoil.
but if your in for a session of silverscreen watching, accompanied with a lot of stretching, hyperventilating, stress and a whole lot of sweat then youre in for it in this flick. the acting are good, the filmographic efforts combined with excellent light and soundwork, together with a serious set of score make it all even better.
why not 10, well i think the makers portrays the prisoners environment a bit smoother and humane than it was in the true life, and i think the introduction to the maincast is a bit slow and weak. so its not a perfect film, even though the grumpy old man had a good time.a recommend.
