Sarafina Is One Of The Best Movies
The critical consensus here is rubbish probably spawning from white guilt. tHE audience score says it all. sarafina is a timeless masterpiece.
The actors are brilliant and bring the songs and their meanings to life. The songs evoke true emotion to anyone who watches it
This harrowing story about an African activist uprising is ultimately ruined by a dense coating of artificial sugar. Much like Spike Lee's "Chi-raq", a musical-esque tone permeates the social drama...however, unlike the solid control Lee has over his tone, "Sarafina" is wildly uneven in its placement of hope and fury, and often completely mishandles the emotions of its characters and themes (ala Columbus's "Rent").
interesting spin on apartheid
Love the movie and music
Ohhh. I thought that film's PG-13, but it's rated R!

I liked the musical numbers and the story was interesting but the two do not mix well here. A near-miss.
Loved it was very moving
