A thoroughly unpleasant film - based on the novel by Daniel Carney, who also wrote The Wild Geese - about a former Rhodesian policeman whose wife is raped and murdered by an albino terrorist during the bush war in my birth country. The policeman then hunts down the killers one by one, all against a backdrop of actual war and world opinion that the murderer of an innocent woman should go unpunished as he "is a freedom fighter".

This film hits a little too close to home for me and I felt very queasy in parts. The German DVD release is a howler of inaccuracy as it says (in translation) "Rhodesia: in the apartheid years". Huh? No apartheid laws in my birth country, son and you must take geography lessons again.

If you want to watch it, it is on Youtube here but be warned: it is very unpleasant although the book is good. The film also has many other titles including Night of Askari and Albino and was directed by the German exploitation filmmaker Jurgen Goslar.

Dad was in the police at the time so that's why it hit a little too close to home.

And I bet it was really painful when Jimmy dumbass Carter handed Rhodesia over to Mugabe and his goons via rigged elections not happy that Ian Smith was voted out the first time but had to have a communist in charge.

Everything you wrote is sadly true: I was last home in 1997 and although I can go home - no restrictions -I actually don't want to but I do miss home.

A friend of mine and a renowned South African actor Ken Gampu, - who also starred in The Naked Prey and Kill And Kill Again - acted in that as the memorably named "Sixpence Cherenge"  TeddyR

The best Rhodesian film by far is this one:

A story about the battle of the Shangani River: once seen, never forgotten and a part of my history. Cheers

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
