Reney Warrington Recommends the Movie Adaptation of Fanie Fourie’s Lobola by Nape 'A Motana

Fanie Fourieâ��s LobolaReney Warrington has written a glowing review of the movie adaptation of Fanie Fourie’s Lobola by Nape ‘A Motana for LitNet.

Warrington says that it is “a world-class film with a strong South African flavour” and compliments the casting, camera work and soundtrack, which is largely made up of Jack Parow. She comments that the fun made at the expense of our cultural traditions in South Africa is done with respect and that it “asks questions around racism, patriarchy and sexism and even goes so far as to suggest we should give the younger generation some room to start their own traditions.”

By saying Fanie Fourie’s Lobola (FFL) is an awesome South African flick I do not mean compared with other South African films, or lekker for a local flick. Oh, no, I mean FFL is a world-class film with a strong South African flavour.

In a nutshell

Afrikaner laaitie falls in love with Zulu girl. Their families are unimpressed.
