Trivia
Young thesp had never seen a movie camera prior to filming, and performs with the effervescent confidence of a pro. Her achievement, and indeed that of the entire cast, is made even more impressive by the fact that dialogue was completely improvised.
Critics
...'The smallest feature made by prolific, Hollywood-experienced South African helmer Darrell James Roodt is also one of his best.'
Variety
...'….delivers maximum emotional rewards for auds of all ages.'
