This was a great movie. The people, the place, everything about it, seemed truly genuine. On the one hand, I hate to give it up. On the other, I feel the need to share it.

Charming ensemble piece about the new South Africa
Andy Orrock | Dallas, TX | 02/01/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mark Bamford's 'Cape of Good Hope' is a small charmer about life in the new South Africa. The heart and soul of the film is Eriq Ebouaney (best known for his portrayal as Patrice Lumumba in Raoul Peck's 'Lumumba' (2000)). He plays "Jean Claude" here. You'll love every scene he's in. He's fabulous.

I came here thinking I'd write a four-star review. But it's so maddening to see people write one- and two-star reviews because they can't get the DVD to play. How fair is that to Director Mark Bamford and his ensemble? I'm giving Bamford's very enjoyable work an additional star to combat the effects of those reviews."

"We enjoyed this movie because of the interesting story and the characters. Note: there are some shots that go to far an are not needed, parent watch first before your kids watch it."
Believable people, believable problems
D. Garrott | Midwest, USA | 11/07/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Thoroughly satisfying to see "real people" progressing with real problems and, in the process, developing admirable qualities of character. We can all relate to the relationships among these workers in a South African animal rescue shelter as the action unfolds in a locality as intriguing as it is unfamiliar to many of us. The result? A delightful movie viewing experience. Mr. Bamford and company, what next?"
