"Incredible...You will not believe what you are watching! It makes Roots look like an episode of The Jeffersons! is the review on the cover by Shock Cinema.
I do not know what to say about this film. The best way to describe it is an accurate depiction in the most inaccurate setting. Is it more disturbing because of the cheesy carnival or seventies music playing during the atrocities portrayed and the romantic music playing during the rape scenes? Or is it that if there had been dramatically appropriate music playing would it have been so depressing and made one so disgusted by the film that they would have walked out on it?
At the time this was filmed, it could only be done in another country---no film country in the States could have, or would have. I am not so sure it could be done now in the States.
