Lots more action in the other Film Fra Sør film we saw, Jerusalema from South Africa. Ralph Ziman seems to have materialized out of nowhere to create this impressive feature debut based on real events, about Lucky Kunene who started his career in car-jacking (learning to drive on the way) before moving into providing pirate housing on a large scale in Johannesburg.

It’s a film which has a bit of everything – action, comedy, romance, family drama, social commentary – without seeming shallow. A crowd pleaser portrait of post-apartheid South Africa without cliches.
