Worth renting - a classicBy SAGAR (1 review) from London , 28 May 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]Fantastic film that we have searched for in several shops for the last 6 years to no avail. Up there with Mississippi Burning + Cry Freedom.
A Lesson in ApartheidBy a customer , 17 Apr 2013Quite an eye opener and I would imagine not far from reality. 'A Dry White Season' was originally released in 1989, so I would have thought that it was quite adventurous, if not daring, to make a film about such a delicate subject as apartheid at that time. All credit to those who did and to those involved, as the film clearly depicts a period of South Africa's history that should not be forgotten. 'A Dry White Season' is a very graphic movie that is not for the squeamish. The acting, location and action scenes are dated and leave a little to be desired compared to today's levels. The film, however, does get it's message across so is well worth watching.
Too realisticBy Ceinwen (1 review) from Oxford , 20 Aug 2010I rated this film 'Painful' because I couldn't bear to go on watching it, then realised that someone might think I meant 'a painfully bad film'. Hence this review, which is more of an explanation than an evaluation of the film.
It is a vivid re-creation of the Apartheid struggle in South Africa and I chickened out when the demonstrating schoolchildren were fired upon by the police. It was bad enough living through it all as it happened- FOR ME. For people who do not know this part of South Africa's history I suspect it would be essential viewing.
A Dry White SeasonBy a customer from Staines , 19 Jul 2008I found this film very thought provoking and reminded me of what we did to South Africa.
Made me feel very humble.
Extremely good film, and very good acting especially by Marlon Brando and Donald Sutherland.

Not bad for the time it was madeBy Mutter (163 reviews) from Wadhurst, England , 11 Oct 2007Mainly hired for cameo by Marlon Brando - always a joy to watch. Better films of this genre more recently produced.
