Director Ralph Ziman speaks about Lucky Kunene:his lead character in GANGSTERS PARADISE: JERUSALEMA
We promise that this film is well worth the watch and we are not the only ones who think so!
A Critic’s praise of GANGSTERS PARADISE: JERUSALEMA
Where Jerusalema triumphs is Ralph Ziman’s uncompromising and skillful direction, depicting some serious social issues in downtown Johannesburg ranging from poverty, crime, drug addiction, xenophobia and interacial love…The violence is uncompromising, the story gripping and the humanity undeniable; Jerusalema is heavy on action, great on story line and could rival such crime epics as Goodfellas or The Departed, depicting one man’s attempt to raise above the poverty he was born in and the environment he hopes to escape. Johannesburg is as much a character in the film as Lucky Kunene, played with relish by Rapulana Seiphemo with a great supporting cast of South African actors. Andre Walker, Southboy
