Critic Reviews for Otelo Burning
Somehow, mostly through the impassioned performances of its young actors, the film finds its footing in the third act ...
A heavy-handed but forceful coming-of-age story set circa 1989, against the backdrop of the violent beginning of apartheid's end ...
This crisp, involving South African drama comes at you in waves, changing course and tone expertly.
This South African ditty is even framed as a scrapbook, mushily remembering childhood traumas and exaltations.
Ms. Blecher draws fine performances out of the young actors and, to her credit, sugarcoats nothing.
