This review is from: The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency [DVD]  (DVD)
I believe McCall Smith was involved in the production of this film version of his book and it shows. This is sensitively produced, shows a lovely depiction of Africa and has great casting of Mma Ramotswe and Rra JLB Matekoni. My two disappointments were of Mma Makutsi who was trying a bit too hard to be "efficient" and instead came across as officious and brusque, and the addition of the gay hairdresser who did nothing to add to the story and whose behaviour seemed unrealistic in the setting of Botswana. This is a wonderful watch though, and highly recommended especially if you have enjoyed the books in this series.
