A funny, heartwarming romantic comedy that will leave you wanting more!
27 April 2014 | by leeehrlichSee all my reviews

Loved this movie from start to finish! The storyline, characters, music, humor and colors of Africa kept me thoroughly entertained. Not to be missed!! So many aspects of the South African culture are brought to light in a subtle, almost teasing way including satire from the white as well as black perspective and their in-bred intolerance of one another's customs and traditions. Each one of the characters is so endearing in their own way - from Dinky and Fanie with their casual, easy acceptance of one another to Fanie's racist Afrikaner mother and brother who just don't get it. The movie is so entertaining and the music so catchy that it will have you singing and smiling your way through to the end.
