As it unfolds, it explores issues of fame and wealth, the position of a strong and independently minded woman in a very masculine society and, perhaps most importantly, the incomprehensible attraction between abuser and victim. Bizet's opera, based on Prosper Merimée's novel, premiered in Paris on March 3, 1875. Set in a poor area of Seville, the story of the magnetic woman who seduces, loves, and ultimately destroys her lover and herself, is well known.

Reviews of the U-Carmen eKhayelitsha

This movie was recently screened at the New York Public Library's African Film Festival which must be commended for including such a fine movie in the program. This movie may be one of the greatest musicals ever produced in cinematic history. Every facet of this movie is superb: the acting, the story, the music, the dancing, the singing, everything. Not only does this movie faithfully tell the story of Carmen, it does so in Xhosa, making the production even more impressive, appealing and effective. The lead players's performances are worthy of the highest accolades, especially the of Pauline Malefane who plays Carmen and Andile Tshoni who plays her lover, Jongi. Their astounding, stunning, stupendous performances carry the movie. Ms. Malefane is one of the great lead actresses and an incredible singer. Further, the movie itself is packed with action and drama, all of which is set in a South African township which adds immeasurably to the movie's strength. Why this movie is not better known in the United States is puzzling. There is no question that this movie would resonate with an American audience. After all, the story of Carmen is timeless and tragic, and this movie successfully captures the essence of the story, providing a version that is unsurpassed.
