Zamile Gantana in U-Carmen


2005 NR

Love, jealousy and deception collide in this film opera set in South Africa and based on Bizet's "Carmen." A cigarette roller in a factory near Cape Town, Carmen (Pauline Malefane) is aware of the spell she has over Jongikhaya (Andile Tshoni), a cop whose obsession with her leads him to illegal activity. But when Jongikhaya discovers that he alone does not hold Carmen's heart, his jealous rage has fatal consequences.
