Following incredible reviews, feedback from media, press and South African fans when Modder En Bloed was released to cinema in April 2016, the much-anticipated DVD of Modder En Bloed was released to stores nationwide last week.
“… Nog ‘n juweel in die plaaslike rolprentskat…” – Laetitia Pople, Netwerk24.
“… ‘n Fliek so taai soos ‘n Springbok vel en spog met uitmuntende spel…” – Leon van Nierop.
“’n Epiese goedvoel-fliek met ‘n reusagtige hart…” – Reney Warrington, LitNet.
The critically acclaimed film Modder En Bloed is an epic tale of pride, hope, resilience, strength of human spirit and South African history; a superb addition to the library of leading South African films. Modder En Bloed is a film inspired by true events, set during the Anglo-Boer War in 1901 when a group of Boer resistance fighters were captured by the British and exiled in the internment camps on St. Helena; a small island over 3000km’s from South Africa in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean. It is here that ‘Willem Morkel’ (Stian Bam) must overcome his inner demons to battle the tyranny of ‘Colonel Swannell’ (Grant Swanby) and save a young boys life through the game of rugby.
Modder En Bloed boasts the ultimate cast from both South Africa and the United Kingdom, with film credits also including Charlotte Salt, Bok van Blerk, Patrick Connolly, Deon Lotz, Jacques Bessenger, Edwin van der Walt, Altus Theart and many more.
The South African war epic Modder En Bloed is the perfect addition to any budding film lover’s collection, and the perfect gift in 2016. Make sure you purchase your copy today from all leading DVD retailers nationwide.
