Bunny Chow: Know Thyself
Time Out says
Rejecting township tales, HIV stories and reminiscences on struggle and apartheid, this low-budget, b&w road-trip yarn is unashamedly modern and trivial, unafraid to indulge in the melting pot of language and traditions and the devil-may-care priorities of the country’s new monied, confident, cosmopolitan youth.
Unsurprisingly, the film is part-funded by MTV and there’s a certain slickness beneath its sense of improvised dialogue and throwaway storytelling. The film is probably much funnier for young South African audiences, and the laddish behaviour of its main players – all of them actual comedians – may put some off, but for British audiences it offers an intriguing slice of modern Jo’burg life.
