"White Wedding", Love and Laughter in South African Cinema

18. November 2009 by Michelle 0 Comments

A hit movie this year in South Africa is "White Wedding", a romantic comedy that shows a softer side of South African men and the long journeys they'll take for love and happiness.


Important relationship issues are dealt with as a soon-to-be-married groom travels across the country with his buddies to marry his wife. Jealousy, unfaithfulness, anxiety, and even racism are presented in a dramatic, yet comedic way. Old and new South African wedding traditions are examined, while European and African cultures collide.


This film also gives a wonderful look at the spectacular South African scenery and a chance to listen to the unique music.
