Critic Reviews for Rough Aunties
A moving tribute to the dedication, humanity and camaraderie of its female subjects.
There are moments of raw, almost unwatchably painful emotion and distress in Kim Longinotto's documentary about the women who work for the Bobbi Bear group, a multiracial volunteer initiative in Durban, South Africa...
Not to say that this is breezy viewing, it's hard to imagine a more miraculously undepressing documentary, given that the subject is child abuse in South Africa.
Longinotto misses the mark in a doc that only scratches the surface of South Africa's broader problems.
Yes, it's tough - sometimes almost unbearable - to watch, but it's also impossible to look away; or to imagine another filmmaker who would approach this subject with such unsparing, steely commitment.
