Struggle to do what is true to their heart
Each going down a separate path
Experience an unfortunate wrath
As fate tries to pull them apart

The Big Finish

Blood is the bond that can’t be broken. De Jager, a white woman from South Africa did not hold back as she wrote, produced and edited this picture. The project definitely must have meant a lot to her as she did a great job bringing her vision to life. The film was shot well, and flashbacks are used timely to further the plot. The family aspect is admirable as the relationship between the two brothers never wavered, even with being on different ends of the law. This film also did a good job of providing a lens to the impoverished in South Africa and how the community is forced to do anything just to survive. I really wish I could understand Zulu because the auto synch from different languages is always distracting for me. I also think it could have helped me to interpret better Nerina De Jager’s take on black culture. Sometimes fate is inevitable no matter how hard you try to change your environment, you’re destined to become a victim of surroundings.
