A Dry White Season,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Dry White Season [DVD] (DVD)
The film is notable for a number of things and the greatest is that it revealed the level of inhumanity that the perpetrators of Apartheid descended to and I'm sure that choosing such a stellar cast helped hammer in yet another nail into that outrageous administration. On the plus side is a wonderful cameo by Marlon Brando that shines through some quite flat dialogue. The main characters appear as strong identities but the film is uneven with errors of continuity - for example, at the end when young Johan is delivering the affidavits he does so with the rain teeming down & him on a bicycle in a poncho; minutes later we see him in a very smart suit being congratulated by all and sundry. At first I thought this was another day but other action continued as though it was the same.
