  • Ek soek 'n bottletjie blou...

The second filmed adaptation of Athol Fugard's famous play. Set in the late 1960s, we examine the situation of a poor and dispossessed man and his wife. While they are currently hobos, we see via flashbacks that they had previously enjoyed a much better lifestyle. They spend a lot of time bickering.

Ian Douglas: Well, the actors worked hard, but the story had nowhere to go. I really should not have rated the film as I did walk out, after deciding several times to stick it out a little longer in the hope that it would improve. Watching two bergies arguing over nothing does not make for exciting cinema. I can have that experience at my nearest bottle store. The most amazing thing was seeing how far they travelled around the Cape Peninsula, on foot, in the space of one day...
