Fanie Fourie’s Lobola

90 min minutes

Perfect for non-film-nerds who want to see a familiar story set in an unfamiliar place, Fanie Fourie’s Lobola is the normalest of cutesy rom-coms, in this case about a South African interracial couple and the culture clashes they must endure. The bright visuals and wacky character actors are almost worth the predictable and threadbare plot, but by the end, the cheesiness of the love story and its awkward treatment of race may leave a bad taste in your mouth.
