A marvelous African fable
1 June 1999 | by Mike-754See all my reviews

Ken Gampu, a black South African, carries this beautiful fable of a man conflicted between two worlds, on his broad shoulders. Stanley Baker is competent in a secondary role, and Juliet Prowse is equally competent in a totally unnecessary role. The music is exceptional. Watch this, and you can see Jamie Uys dealing with the subject matter that he would turn into a worldwide hit 15 years later in THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY.
