5.0 out of 5 stars Faith like Potatoes 8 Dec 2008
This film is beautifully and sensitively acted. The story line is clear. It is very moving for the whole family as they are uprooted from their home in Africa due to racial hatred and resettle in a place with nothing, going from comfort to poverty. Quite emotional as there is raising of the dead and an accident leading to the death of a child. The whole film shows very clearly that God is passionately in love with all of us and as we trust Him in our everyday lives in work, family and leisure time He will work miracles. All the more poignant as it shows the family in 2006 that the story is based on at the end of the film. Excellent viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Faith Like Potaties DVD 23 Aug 2009
I had heard of Angus Buchan a number of times and that he had written a book on the same title. He is of Scottish origin though he was born and brought up in Africa. The film begins with the reality of racial hatred and what is the inevitable for Angus and his wife and then 3 young children. Angus is a man who is 'driven' (by the old work ethic) and all that goes along with it which his wife and family have to endure. What keeps them together is deep down they truly love one another albeit very challenging at times.
On moving to south africa they get some land and end up living in poverty and a small caravan. Bit by bit some Zulus' connect with them but Angus is impatient, intollerant and a very angry man so life is difficult all round. Eventually it gets to the stage where his wife thinks he needs drug intervention because of his depression and dispair. His wife has coffee one day with one of the other mums from school and from there things begin to change. If you have lost your job, lost your home, lost a member of your family, lost your way in life, or if you have given your all and nothing seems to be working out this true story will certainly give you some answers and a way forward which offers real hope and LIFE beyond your own efforts.
It has to be viewed several times to grasp the amazing treasures and truths contained within it. Enjoy, wonderful! I'm off to watch it for the 4th time!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Faith like potatoes - awesome 17 July 2009
Faith Like Potatoes

What an eye opener.This is a great movie and it hopefully will get someone to realize there's more to being a Christian that spending an hour at church on Sunday morning. Churches today should realise its not about the building but about the people, they are the Church who Jesus is in love with...and calls it His bride. It shook me and my husband to the core and we need to stand up and be proud of what a mighty God we serve!

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, Inspirational & Moving 22 Jun 2010
By Peter B
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Angus Buchan was a farmer in Zambia with some serious attitude problems. This inspiring true story is about how he and his family left to start over again near Pietermaritzburg, South Africa with virtually nothing. He had a remarkable conversion to Christianity, and his subsequent energy and passion for outreach, his miraculous experiences of God's power and answer to prayer and, most of all his deep and unshakable faith, in the face of great challenges and tragedy, are truly inspirational. This is a powerful and moving movie that you will want to share with as many others as possible. Superb. As a post-script, Angus today has an international ministry, and he has been instrumental in leading many thousands to Christ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Living simple faith with great results! 9 Dec 2009
We have so many teaching books on the subject of faith... At last a book on someone who lives it to prove to us how God intended faith to be: simple, easy as it is having faith in a great God! It is such an encouragement to see how a life can be completely turned around when we allow our trust to be in God! It is such a fresh breeze encouraging us to have an intimate and enjoyable relationship with God. Like this farmer, we need to plant our seeds: a simple trust in a loving God. We don't see the results during the growth until God - who is the One performing the miracles -brings out great results in spite of what glooming circumstances were showing!

It's not just the excellent acting, direction, casting and performances of everyone in this film that makes it so gripping- it's also 'meeting' Angus himself, his family, friends, workers and associates who feature on the extras which come with this DVD.
A humbled man by the transformation of his life after giving his whole self to the Lord Jesus, this is the amazing series of events which has brought that same transformation to many, many other helpless and hurting lives - both black and white.
If you really thought that Christianity was a dead and mothballed religion, have a look at the impact of real faith as depicted here. Jesus Christ in action through men and women who know Him; this is where it's at!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see! 16 Jun 2011
This film is excellent. Even my 11 year old daughter wants to watch it agin within a couple of weeks of seeing it. A great encouragement to be what God has planned for you. He does have one for you whoever you are.

Don't let the title deter you from viewing this. It is an amazing true story of a Zambian farmer who has to move to South Africa due to political problems. It is an incredible journey of a man with no faith to a man who has been and is still mightily used by God. The acting and film making is first class, really first class and way above the quality of some Christian films I've seen. If you need some encouragement (which will be all of us !) , then take a look at this. I watched it for the second time last week and was as excited and moved by it as I was the first time. Whilst not an accurate comparison it gives something of a spiritual lift as such films as Braveheart but with a Christian story and message.
