Tsotsi (Thug) Reviews
Tsotsi has no decency at the start of yhe film involved in fatal muggings, shootings, theft and the inadvertent abduction of a baby.
His extreme methods even shock some of his fellow gang members.
We see Tsotsi attempt to look after the baby instead of returning it to its rich Johannesburg parents.
I swear that after seeing the poverty in the townships that I challenge anybody to question living standards here.
The FIFA World Cup competition staged in South Africa in 2010 completely airbrushed it.
The film uses the language of the townships as well as Afrikaans traditionally associated with the country.
I never knew such language differences existed to be honest.
In fact I am still in a state of shock at the real poverty displayed not the Hollywood version in District 9.
