Of course it is depressing, but I still would recommend this to anyone who has questions about Apartheid. It also shows how "white justice" is not just a problem in the US. Excellent acting all around. Some pretty graphic scenes of torture.

I've heard of this time, but had no concepts. This gave me some feeling about the deep emotions and twisting philosophies. This was powerful in the acting by all of the characters. I would give it 4, withholding a perfect star because there were a couple of places that were too obvious plays on audience draw.
