A troubled young man has a series of dreams in which he is a combat soldier in the South African Bush War, where he meets his father at the same age. Getting to know him gives the son insight and compassion, and he is able to let go of life-long feelings of abandonment and anger, which leads to forgiveness and a real-life reconciliation. My Father's War follows the journey of reconciliation between a father trained to handle war's worst circumstances but unqualified in his parenting. His son is unable to comprehend or forgive his father for the choices he has made and for the regime he fought for.

Nice try, just short of being OK!!

A nice try at communicating some of the difficulties between "fathers and sons" With a little more "meat" it could have made a good movie. It could work as a conversation opener between fathers and son's but hasn't got enough to show anything but the thin surface. A stretch of the imagination is needed to come closer to what it really was like and why many of us came back a little "different"...
Otherwise for a lazy Sunday afternoon as light entertainment.

My fathers war

Not very impressed with story line nor the props: weak acting, inaccurate props and clothing...budget too cheap. Would prefer more attention to authenticity of detail... ie: using R1's, browns, water bottles...appropriate boots and webbing.

Not to be missed!

Whether you were a wife, mother or girlfriend of the men who served our country in a ‘senseless’ war, the film cleverly uses symbolism to portray the broken relationship between a father and a son. If you miss it, it will be a loss. – Belia Nel
