A disturbing, visually confronting piece of work by Oliver Hermanus set in South Africa. Francois leads a double life, a successful married businessman in one, and a sexual deviant in another. Francois' perversion is for sex with other men, but there is no room in that for the hated faggots and blacks. Hermanus creates an atmosphere with this film through the use of silence and mood, and I find myself torn between pity for Francois and his plight, and hatred for his inhumanity and selfishness. The dissatisfaction he feels about his marriage and the antipathy toward his wife and daughter are palpable.
