5.0 out of 5 stars A TRULY SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE, IN ZIMBABWE TOO, December 21, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Searching for Sugar Man (DVD)
Rodriguez was also known to us in the late 1970's / early 1980's in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), a small country north of South Africa. At that time our country was undergoing a civil war and a lot of children were schooled in Boarding Schools, as it was safer living at school than living at home on farms, as farms ran the risk of armed terrorist attacks.

As idle boarding school teenagers we listened to COLD FACT on our communal record player nearly every afternoon, scratched vinyl 'schkt-schkt' included.

As teenagers, these wise words and lyrics were correctly accepted at life-truth's and philosophy lessons - listen carefully and mull over the words.

Now, more than 30 years later I see this touching story unfold further. A truly wise man who superficially seemed to 'fail' in his resident country, yet unknowingly in other parts of the world (Southern Africa, Australia and parts of Europe) in places probably unknown to him, he was a huge success at positively influencing and teaching thousands with his wise words.

This story fittingly reminds us that LIFE works in strange ways.

Mr Rodriguez, I salute you and I thank you.

Great comments! So much more interesting than just a recap of the film so many tend to do. You made me give even further thought into Rodriguez's role at that time ... and that's always a welcome thing. Thanks!
