“A moving, splendidly directed film about the forced removals of people from Sophiatown during apartheid. Brilliant, understated acting, moody cinematography and a captivating story make this a timely contribution to South African cinema.” – Leon van Nierop, Daily Sun/Rapport
“A combination of Scorsese’s Mean Streets with Coppolla’s Godfather sans the Italian charm, and yet full of intense African pathos…with its evocative lighting and edited colour blends of earthy, greens and scarlet B.O.T.M. is as exquisitely shot film as is heart wrenching, blood spilled poetic violent caper about the black urban painful past. It also successfully, maybe unwittingly, to eviscerates the whole Kofifi as a black cultural Renaissance citadel and reveals a place deeply mutilated by internal as well as internal forces. Unbelievable as it is, it is also the story of love.” – Bongani Madondo, Sunday Times
