I Wonder…

Just saw “Searching for Sugarman”… I was transported back to my youth in apartheid South Africa… the movie opens with an achingly strong South African accent and these vistas of the magnificent Cape peninsula and the words of that iconic song…” from a blue coin won’t you bring back all those colours to my dreams” … it was as if I was airlifted to my family home listening to that album with headphones 100 years ago…the movie is extraordinary … not just if you ever listened to Rodriguez or or you grew up in the 70s in South Africa… but for me it was such a tale about spirit, magic and transformation and less about what might have been.
