Twisted and hi­lar­i­ous

CityPress - - Opportunity index -

This dar­ing, crooked and twisted tale is not your ev­ery­day ro­mance of flow­ers and can­dlelit din­ners, but a dark and in­tense con­tem­po­rary love story.

Lust and emo­tion run through the veins of the hero and hero­ine as they man­age to make their cir­cum­stances all the more hope­less in a se­ries of sticky sit­u­a­tions.

The chem­istry, the pas­sion, the ag­gres­sion are all too pal­pa­ble and as the lovers grow with each other, so does their ro­mance, which even­tu­ally takes a much clearer and more solid shape than the plot.

Where the di­rec­tion of the story does not carry much weight, th­ese emo­tional en­tan­gle­ments make all the dif­fer­ence.

I cringed through some of the scenes of pas­sion, and shud­dered when the lan­guage got too strong. Yet I laughed at the jokes and light mo­ments in between the fights, car chases, rob­beries and high-oc­tane vi­o­lence. Is­rael Makoe is hi­lar­i­ous. – Siyabonga Sit­hole
