Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tsotsi [DVD]  (DVD)
I don't usually take the time to review things as most people say it all in their reviews anyway, but I have to express my pure love for this film.
Not only did I cry from beginning to end, but I cried with every single emotion known to man: anger, sadness, annoyance, happiness, but above all things, HOPE. The events in this film may not be happening to you, but it's the lessons they teach that will inspire you to think more about how you perceive the world around you as it touches on morals and global issues without throwing them in your face.
Tsotsi as a character is entirely believable. Kudos to the actor who plays him; he allowed me to understand Tsotsi through actions alone.
Fantastic story, fantastic script, fantastic music; this film is beyond words.
The film is not for the faint-hearted, but although there is a fair amount of action and violence, I wouldn't call it an "action film". The film is a little slow as it is only based on a few days in the life of Tsotsi, so I would not recommend this to anyone who loves a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat thriller. However, I would still encourage anybody to give it a chance! Magnificent!!
