Review
Tsotsi is a hard-faced young hoodie with no family ties and fewer scruples, ruthlessly killing those that he robs, but when he steals a car with a baby in it his human side starts to emerge. We watch an alternative possible life emerge, his loveless past of physical abuse gradually submerged by his new found awareness of both family life around him and his own humanity. But is it too late to save him from the consequences of his past crimes and is the violence really gone? An Oscar winning film of disaffected black South African youth and the reasons behind their violent crimes. Of course all he really needed was a hug.
