Visually beautiful and intensely powerful this movie is full of such hope. Some scenes are incredibly hard to get thru (i had to cover my eyes for two) but well worth it. With hope comes pain, but if we are lucky, out of that pain grows stronger hope. (reading Aqiva's review however, i would be willing to say the book may be even more compelling... based on that, try the book first, then the film.)

Dreadful adaption of Bryce Courtenay's book. The book, however, is a gem, a wonderful and incredibly beautifully-written novel.

Quite dated now, though doubtlessly very compelling at the time of its release. Check it out if only to catch Daniel Craig's feature film debut as the sadistic Sgt. Joppe during the film's implausible last act!

It's been a while since I've seen this movie, but the one thing I remember was being let down at how far it strayed from the book it was supposed to be based on. The book was phenomenal, the movie - if I pretend it was a stand-alone thing - was alright.

heartbreaking -
"when will we ever learn?"
P.K. @7 is positively precious.

Some good performances, but this film puts the viewer through way too much graphic, gut-wrenching violence to make its points about the evils of apartheid and importance of personal responsibility. It also suffers from script problems and a depiction of good guys versus bad buys that is too black and white (pardon the pun.)
