Maybe it's just me and my vision, but why is it I can't help but laugh instead of crying during the dramatic scenes in this film? The actors' facial expressions may have something to do with it. That particular scene where Langa was kicked out by the stepmother and he was crying while saying "Why? Why oh lord?", well, it had a very queer effect on me indeed. Clearly their brand of acting seems queer, or maybe just different from what we've been accustomed to. Directed by Wally von der Merwe, this comedy-drama-musical film sure is unique and with a dark sense of direction and story.
