The dvd – Gangster’s Paradise: Jerusalema


The movie starts with the climax, the story and the post climax, it is the best way to present it because it grabs and holds your attention almost till the end of the 120 minutes, and just when you start shifting in your seat, it ends.
Like the title suggests, the movie is about a city where going straight is only an option if you want to starve. Even getting an education does not help matters.
It is set during the post-apartheid era in South Africa, when crime was at its peak. It is about the life of one young man, Lucky (Rapulano Seiphmo), who fails to get a scholarship to his dream university and eventually drops out of school to become a casual labourer.
Even after getting a glimpse of how “sweet” “dirty money” can be, together with his best friend, Zakes (Ronnie Nyakale), insist on getting their money the straight way and set up a car wash. They work so hard for so little. With their little savings, they get armed and get into the business of stealing cars, especially because it is clean.
Their gangster work gets bloody and they try to lead a straight life only for them to be robbed after that. There is no turning back. So they rob their way to the top and even find a way to make themselves look legit, but for how long?
This is an interesting watch, you won’t notice its length but might question how it ends.
