There’s more than a whiff of Slumdog in this rather calculated tale of three Rwandan kids hitching to South Africa for the 2010 World Cup, a journey which sees a Congolese child soldier and a teenage prostitute join their ranks, and a couple of gun-toting thugs dog their heels.
Throw in the safari wildlife, AIDS and some bold animated sequences, and you have a weirdly unwieldy concoction that’s too dark for kids and too naive for adults.
Still, director Debs Gardner-Paterson gets disarming performances from her young leads and the soundtrack is terrific.
