“I am writing this without spoilers, intentionally. I want people that havenu0026#39;t seen this movie and who read this, to understand how incredibly important it is, and to know that it is beautifully made.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere arenu0026#39;t any words that are adequate enough to express how much I loved this movie. Someone reading this might wonder, u0026quot;Why a 10, though?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMy answer is that some things are imperfectly perfect. This is one of those things.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSpeaking of 10, this is now in my top 10 favorite movies of all time now, it made that much of an impression. It is a heartbreaking, beautiful story that inspired me to do some research on the movie. Because I care. Deeply. And Iu0026#39;m pretty sure that was the goal: awareness, compassion, concern and love.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThabo Kaamba, the little girl that played young Joseph, was fantastic in this role. May she be blessed all her life. She is beautiful, and perfect.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eJohn Chiti, whom the story is based on, is now a musician and activist, an advocate for those that were also born with albinism.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIu0026#39;m so very happy to see a movie about Africa thatu0026#39;s actually made in Africa (Zambia), and out of the reach of Hollywood-influence.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eCongratulations to everyone that worked on this project and for its success as the first Zambian film on the Netflix streaming service.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003ePhenomenal directing and production by Mumba and Thompson. The writing was epic. The cast were fantastic. Solid cinematography.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFor anyone reading this, understand that in Zambia and some other countries in Africa, assault and violence against people with albinism is not rare. Iu0026#39;ll leave you to your own research. Itu0026#39;s frightening, and heartbreaking.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI had to stop the movie several times because I was sobbing with grief. I have tears in my eyes just writing this review. The movie is that profound.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAn online reviewer said, u0026quot;A narrative symphony that resonates, long after the last note fades away.u0026quot; Nothing could be more true.”
