Reno Gazette-Journal

Intelligent piece that does its job as entertainment. More importantly, it should advance public knowledge about the apartheid government's human rights violations.

| Original Score: 3/4

...the foxhole relationship that develops between Anna and Langston is completely natural -- up until the point where they fall into bed together.

Need[s] to be seen, as essential history and as demonstration of a form of social reckoning where compassion triumphs over passion, and the olive branch over the gun.

Important for what it teaches about revenge, justice and forgiveness. But you'll have to ignore the goofiness.

A stirring, large-souled movie about an event that was both an exposure of horror and a celebration of forgiveness.

See In My Country anyway, because it's doubtful we'll get another movie too soon that raises the issue of vengeance versus forgiveness -- and endorses the latter in the name of a nation's spiritual well-being.

The actors can handle the heavy lifting, but this doesn't give you much more than a well-done cable documentary.

The script...intelligently explores...the profound need to make sense out of madness and to find emotional peace in its aftermath...Sustains a deep and moving involvement.

Cinema em Cena

A direção de Boorman e o roteiro deixam muito a desejar, muitas vezes apostando num maniqueísmo desnecessário. Porém, o filme tem coração e alma - e isto faz a diferença.

| Original Score: 3/5

The charisma and hard work by his two leads allows Boorman to succeed beyond all expectations.

In spite of narrative missteps that negate the possibility of an empathetic protagonist, "In My Country" does viably introduce the African principle of "Ubuntu" whereby evil transgressions are absolved rather than revenged.
