French film, City of Violence (Zulu), in South Africa

city of violence

City of Violence (Zulu), the film by French director Jerome Salle, features Orlando Bloom and Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker in a thriller set in post-Apartheid South Africa. The film, which was part of the official selection of the 2013 Cannes International Film Festival and the closing film of the festival, will be screened nationwide in Cinema Nouveau, from 10 October.

Synopsis:
In a South Africa still haunted by apartheid, two police officers are tracking the killer of a teenage girl. From the townships of Cape Town to the luxurious seafront villas, the investigation will transform the two men's lives, forcing them to confront their inner demons.

In the media:
"Violence, vengeance and a decision to forgive: Jérôme Salle frames the thinking of his odd but inspired film about a man's inner struggles." Sunday Independent, 12 October 2014 Download the full article here
