Movie Info

Leila Domingo, a London trained doctor, returns home to Cape Flats for her father's funeral. When she recognizes Farakahn as her childhood friend, it triggers a wave of conflicting emotions. She finds herself drawn into Farakahn's world while he tries to set an example for his son, Ricardo, who is a chess prodigy lured in equal measure by the thrill of warfare on the chessboard and the seductive prestige of joining a powerful street gang.

  • An intense if somewhat overwrought foray into South African street violence.

  • Gabriel has mastered the street-style rulebook as written by films such as City of God and Amores Perros, and has transposed the tricks effectively to this relatively little-seen setting, but he doesn't have much new to add to the mix.

  • This sprawling, overambitious South African gangland thriller is hugely entertaining

    Jun 1, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Each character is defined by a distinct narrative drawn from Hollywood cinema...the languages, gestures, manners, thinking, and appearance of the characters are clearly South African, but they are in narrative modes that are clearly American.

  • Revelations thus never pack the punch they should and the endgame lacks the electricity that the performances might have generated.
