repression turns to anger,
This review is from: Beauty (Skoonheid) DVD (DVD)
I know very very little about south African cinema but found this film a real treat. It is slow paced , visual and only tells you about the characters what it wants . How I love world cinema when it dares to tease its audience . This isn't a loud coming out love triumphs gay movie and I can imagine a much wider audience say those who enjoy Danish cinema , if it wasn't just classified because of this [ amazon does love a pigeon hole] . This is an africaans version of death in venice but because of the more masculine violence society a much more brutal ending . I did find some of the English hard to hear and also the ending is one to leave you hanging rather than satisfy . For those those like to think along side their late night movie . A rather forgotten classic .
