Dividing Bar

Feature film that grew out of the director's short film of the same name. The short film, included on the Film Movement DVD, is better, a real must-watch, as is the Swedish series Don't Ever Wipe Tears Without Gloves. This one does too much telling rather than showing and you can feel it straining a bit. Nonetheless it has lots of good qualities, including clear and classic cinematography and good old-fashioned storytelling -- in fact the plot's a bit like a twenty-first-century South African version of Oliver Twist. Sihle Dlamini sturdily carries the enterprise on his young shoulders and the two main adult actors are very big names.
