Cry, the Beloved Country (African Fury)

Cry, the Beloved Country (African Fury) (1951)

My Rating

Movie Info

This deliberately paced British film about a black rural priest and a white landowner whose paths cross in 1940s South Africa remains one of the most powerful cinematic statements on racism. Based on Alan Paton's landmark novel, Cry the Beloved Country is, in hindsight, na´ve in its belief that apartheid would be easier to overcome than history proved it to be, but its intentions are certainly in the right place and it never trivializes the importance of the issue. To the credit of both Paton

Well-intentioned engaging drama about South Africa's evil system of apartheid in the 1940s.
