Tornado and the Kalahari Horse Whisperer

2009-05-29 14:42

Tornado is a true life story of patience, endurance and passion. Directed by Regardt van den Bergh of Faith like Potatoes fame, the picture tells the story of two damaged souls: Pierre (Quentin Krog), a depressed and damaged young man and Tornado, an emotionally tormented horse.

Tornado is an Arab horse of the purest bloodline that was pushed too hard and too fast to become a show horse. He developed Self Mutilation Syndrome and became a danger to himself and others. Sterility, brought on by stress, made him worthless to his owner.

However, Pierre senses Tornado's potential, and he travels to Noenieput, in the Groen Kalahari, to find Barrie Burger (Danny Keogh), the well-known horse whisperer. Having spent more than twenty years as a missionary travelling the Kalahari on horseback, Barrie developed a special talent. He gained a deep understanding of horses and learnt how to whisper to them.

With Barrie's help, Pierre begins to hear Tornado's whisper, understand his pain, and release him from it. And as Pierre further gains Tornado's trust by following Barrie's ten whispering steps, he finds that he too begins to change as the pair of them embark on a journey of healing and self discovery, one that will change their lives forever.

The moving story of a horse and a man – broken by life, brought together by chance, healed by the curative powers of the Horse Whisperer of the Kalahari.

Dissapointing to say the least. I found myself emotionally detached and cold. Leanne needs some voice couching. She slurs too much. The scenes doesn't flow into another. I really expected more from Regard v d Bergh. The viewer cannot get into the character of any of the players. At the end I felt rob of something. There is n't much story to this film anyway.Nice desert scenes

Hierdie is n rolprent wat almal mee kan identifiseer. Die negatiewe kommentaar wat mense lewer is as gevolg van die onverwerkte seer in hul eie lewens. Dankie Barrie vir die onbaatsugtige diens om JESUS te neem na hulle wat honderde kilometers van die naaste kerk of selfs winkel is,ja hulle wat op verafgelee plase na skaap en bees moet omsien sodat ons in die groter sentrums ons honger mae kan stil. GOD seen jou en die helle span wat by die maak van die rolprent betrokke was.
