REVIEW: "I have no words for this film. What can I say? For the leading character who delivers an extraordinary performance, bringing two different characters to life simultaneously? Or for the brilliant (literally) direction which presents the bipolar nature of man- the battle between their good and bad side which not necessarily ends with the good side winning. The director brings up the issue of differentiation between people, as well as racism. The injustice of having yourself being undermined to something different than you. Burt suddenly realises all the racism he has been though all of those years and stands up for himself. In conclusion, we have to congratulate Mark Norfolk hoping that he will continue to create such masterpieces to please not only cinema but also theatre audiences, as he is also a playwright and a theatre director.

Written and directed by award winning filmmaker Mark Norfolk the movie explored the intense loving relationship of a couple sworn to each other against the odds in an increasingly complicated society.

crbdg3British actor Jeffery Kissoon delivers a stunning performance as Burt, a man conflicted by the past and the future. He received the EKO International Film Festival Best Actor Award whilst on tour in the US in the title role of Julius Caesar with the Royal Shakespeare Company. British actress  Jennifer Guy supports as Burt's loving wife, Jean.
