Cuckold

 Brave, intense story about a man reeling from the loss of his wife to another man. We watch a deep performance by Director Charlie Vandla as lead protagonist coming to terms with his demons and failings; friendship formed with an old contemporary and re-entry into his of his once lost wife. Film essentially held by the consistency of the Vandla who unfailing in his characterization of a regular guy to whom ‘shit has happened’. It a welcomed cinematic, indie style film from SA for its pacing and little seen black and white male bonding. Well-conceived even if a little soggy in the middle.
