Mr. Hood's meditation on truth and reconciliation doesn't traffic in the cheap thrills of art-house exploitation?he wrings tears with sincerity, not cynicism. ?The New York Times
Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Film and based on the book by acclaimed writer Athol Fugard, this film traces six days in the life of a young gang leader who shoots a woman, steals her car, and then finds her baby in the back seat. Pumping with the high energy of Zola?s ?Kwaito? music, and told from an African perspective, Tsotsi is an extraordinary portrait of ghetto life in the sprawling Johannesburg townships?a story about the triumph of love over rage.
