CFDb Review!

What a POWERFUL true story. This is a DON’T MISS film! You will experience all sorts of emotions and it really does bring out God’s amazing power. A film mixed with faith and fear and love!  Check out the CFDb Interview with Frans Cronjé.

Film Synopsis:

A Zambian farmer of Scottish heritage, who leaves his farm in the midst of political unrest and racially charged land reclaims and travels south with his family to start a better life in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. With nothing more than a caravan on a patch of land, and help from his foreman, Simeon Bhengu, the Buchan family struggle to settle in a new country.

Faced with ever mounting challenges, hardships and personal turmoil, Angus quickly spirals down into a life consumed by anger, fear and destruction. Based on the true story by Angus Buchan, The moving journey of a man who, like his potatoes, grows in faith, unseen until the harvest.

    It was wonderful to see this movie, a truly well filmed, well presented film that has high standards of cinematography and a well paced and well written storyline. Sheer dedication of raw emotion coming through in the acting also makes this movie brilliant to watch. It doesn’t shy away from issues political, social, religious or scenes that are horrific to see. A story about a man who knows of a God but doesn’t really know God. It is a great film. A miracle on the screen. A truly great film. Faith like potatoes.. The name really makes sense after you have seen the film.

    I have to admit that when I saw the cover I didn’t think it would be all that great. But this was an excellent movie and very inspiring… fantastic!

    This film is different than most and that is what I like the most. The pacing of this film is slower than other Christian films, but it is still one to watch. But the story of faith in God to provide is an important one, and I know lots of Americans that need to hear it. The only thing I don’t like is the sound equality. There are moments where you can’t hear what was said. Production value needs most help there.

    A fantastic, uplifting and encouraging movie. This genuine true story about one man’s journey from life as a struggling farmer without God to become a strong believer in Jesus, successful farmer, living by faith was a significant challenge for me to catch fire in a similar manner. There is one thing that bugs me, however. In an early scene, as Angus watches his bull going down from disease, under his breath he mutters, “Dang it.” Our church librarian can’t be convinced that he didn’t say something a bit more biting. So she won’t keep it in the church library. It’s a real shame, because this really is a compelling story about living by faith.
