Time Out says

The list of moralistic movies representing the legacy of apartheid as a white man's burden needn't get any longer, but Boorman's tale of two reporters covering South Africa's "Truth and Reconciliation" trials asserts itself as something other than your usual safari of liberal guilt. While Boorman's methods aren't revolutionary—the antiapartheid narrative is still filtered through a love story with marquee stars—the balance of perspectives on the nation's period of healing adds resonance (if occasional earnestness) to a topic often boiled down to reductionist tragedy-by-numbers.
