Frequently Bought Together
François (Dean Lotz) lives a skilfully controlled, well managed family life, in Bloemfontein, South Africa.
He is wholly unprepared when a chance encounter unravels his clean and ordered existence. 23-year-old Christian (Charlie Keegan) is the son of a long lost friend. By all accounts he is the personification of a handsome young man in the prime of his life. François is so disarmed by the young man that it instantly ignites within him an all consuming infatuation and misplaced lust.
Extras: Interview with director Oliver Hermanus.
"A ferociously powerful, yet subtle and complex performance from Deon Lotz." --The Guardian
"An impressive piece of work." --The Times

The thin veneer of familial bliss is soon seen to be cracking with casual racism, homophobia, an unfaithful wife and children who lie. Also daddy isn't exactly what he seems to be as he goes to bear type all men swingers groups. Needles to say he is not gay, but he soon becomes smitten with Christian. But Christian lives in Cape Town and Francois is in Bloemfontein which is a fair old drive. Undeterred he invents an excuse to go to Cape Town where he will orchestrate a meeting to go to the next level. Well as Oscar Wilde famously said, `there is only one thing worse than unrequited love.....and that is when it is requited'.
Beauty or `Skoonheid' to give it its original title is an art house film in many ways. It is both cleverly and artistically shot, the acting is outstanding and the music is understated but works almost subliminally. The pace will be a bit slow for some, but that reflects the narrative which is hardly planned from the players perspective either.
There are some bedroom action bits but not in the least frequent but there are some scenes that will be upsetting to some, this is most definitely not a feel good movie. It was South Africa's best foreign language film entry to the 84th Academy awards, so by all accounts there is a lot to merit attention here.Read more ›
