The Beauty of Skoonheid

Oliver Hermanus, Deon Lotz

Skoonheid (Beauty) gave South Africans reason to take an extra special interest in this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and vice versa, as director Oliver Hermanus presented the first Afrikaans film to be screened in the official selection of Un Certain Regard. Following his moving portrait of a mother’s love in Shirley Adams, Hermanus has shifted his focus to a man – both husband and father – as he examines the unravelling of his lead character François (played superbly by Deon Lotz), in this thought-provoking, lingering film.

The movie picked up the Queer Palm, following its debut at Cannes, and recently won Best South African Feature Film Award and the Jury Special Mention Prize at the Durban International Film Festival.

Skoonheid is currently on the SA cinema circuit. More details here.

They prudently take advantage of this kind of fact and begin flooding the inbox and also snail-mail box together with hundreds of Zero APR card offers immediately after the holiday season finishes. Knowing that in case you are like 98% of all American open public, you’ll hop at the opportunity to consolidate personal credit card debt and move balances for 0 interest rates credit cards. gfffehk – Headache meds for sale
