Movie Review: Life, Above All

Life, Above All


Director: Oliver Schmitz

Stars: Khomotso Manyaka

Rating: ****

Notable for its outstanding performance by youngster Khomotso Manyaka, Life, Above All is a drama that places the strong-willed 12-year-old in a tumultuous South African township dealing with poverty and AIDS. While the themes remain heavy, the well-shot, beautifully acted film is an impressive, touching piece of world cinema.
