When the police fail to pursue his wife's murderer vigorously enough, Bobedi enlists his brother Boy-Boy to help him track down the killer.
Reviews of the State of ViolenceWell SA cinema this years has given us Afrikaans drama, cigarette addicted South Africans, South African folks scheming to steal money that does not belong to them and now Khalo Matabane brings a dose of realism, angst, despair and post apartheid head aches all rolled in one in a film called "state of violence". Where like in that famous play by Shakespeare "All are punished".
The movie does not just explore the nature of violence ,but revenge and holding onto vendettas ,which makes it more powerful especially since it locates this arguments not just in recent SA history but which takes into account the present day South Africa. Like the title character Bobedi aka Terror who has left his comrade life behind for BEE suites and accumulative wealth.The township remain a stark reminder of where South Africa comes from as a country and how far it still needs to go to (re)address the wrongs of the past. How ironic that its these township that gave birth to Bobedi spawn the thing that would change Bobedi life forever.
The question then becomes; does the BEE man continue to smoke cigars in the lavish clubs or does he go medieval on everyone like he used to back in the heyday of the struggle. It's his choices that show how families and South Africans humanity was/is scared by apartheid history, especially by the violence of the aparthied years and the continuing poverty that persists today.
This is Fana Mokoena's film as Bobedi aka Terror. The man does not have to say much.Like Rodney Nyakaile aka papa action in "portrait of young man drowning" we spend a lot of the film following him,literally with the camera, as he goes through the nooks and corners of the township.The films also relies on the face of the actor to convey a lot of subtext and nuance. Fana delivers in spade.It's actually cool that Ronnie is in this film too. Poor Presley is Fana's younger brother who plays the toughie with a soft heart to Terrors hard edge.He does not get as much screen time but Presley makes those baby cheeks to work for him,you could almost just give him a tissue to wipe those tears but he does the bleeding heart very well.
Khalo Matabane has to be congratulated for making a very depressive film and not being apologetic about it.This film is good. Its depressing cause it does not offer any easy answers plus it leaves you with real life questions that plague South Africans. The fact it reminds me of "a history of violence" speaks volume about what themes that come out from Khalo's film.In an era where there's pressure to dumb it down and make straight commercial flicks ,Khalo has to be applauded for sticking to the thinking mans cinema.
The film ain't perfect, there are one or two cliché moments , the pace is quite slow and you just need to let the film grow on you.But I liked it, I felt it really raises some issues that need to discussed in current RSA. It made me think of all those IFP,ANC ,special forces guys who were hectic in the 80's killing people and all; where are they now and how are they adjusting to the new SA? Then there's South Africans in general and how they view violence and how they use it especially with the recent xenophobia attacks and all.If you want a film that will make you think not necessarily entertain ,check this one out.
