Great work (starring, direction, camera, editing, music and sound) of a problem I thought about as well when in South Africa. No mixed couple, black people in the lower jobs or jobless, still no power in the township houses - after so long time!
I enjoyed how the professor (Malkovich) started to understand his daughters reaction.
John Malkovitch is an amazing actor. Period. This film made me think about Dogville except that - SPOILER ALERT - there is no revenge which is quite frustrating. It serves the purpose but damn it’s depressing !
Damn it, my heart aches for you and all you've been through, Africa. In many ways this a horror film. Cons: Malkovich's accent, pacing. Pros: "A story of almost transcendental humiliation – it could be called biblical, except that unlike Job, Lurie has no God to confront." - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
