The film begins and ends with Yesterday walking on a road. A lingering sideways tracking shot across a bare expanse of burnt, tussocky grass towards distant, shadowy mountains takes us into the first moments of Yesterday, the first film ever made in isiZulu. The quality of the film is apparent at once. The shot comes to rest on the figures of two young Zulu girls, a mother and a daughter, as they amble slowly up a tortuously long road towards an unknown destination.

The daughter asks simple questions - the type that make youth appear so endearingly innocent: Then I could fly where we're going. Yesterday concerns one of the most pressing issues in Africa today, the spread of AIDS, which has in recent years reached epidemic proportions. From that premise, it soon becomes clear where the two travellers are headed: As the film proceeds we witness how Yesterday deals with the horrifying burden of sickness in a society that is still largely ignorant of the causes of disease, and highly suspicious of those who succumb to it; and in a country whose government offers no real material or moral help for such extremity.

Yesterday is an examination of life under the tyranny of the incurable. Nevertheless, the film eschews any overtly political comment though there are a couple of scenes that tempt us to draw our own conclusions and remains a purely Yesterday darrell roodt online dating story of a young woman's fight against the invincible.

Yesterday is a young mother living in a small African village, trying to raise her daughter and give her the education that she herself was denied.

She knows nothing of AIDS when the horror of knowledge is thrust upon her. All that remains for her to do is try to shield her daughter from them. Events conspire against her, yet bolster her at the same time. A terrifying confrontation with her husband a brilliant cameo, Yesterday darrell roodt online dating played by Kenneth Khambulathe man who gave her AIDS, leads to a heart-rending reconcilement. Death gives her a determination to live. In every case the bad engenders some good.

In charting the effects of AIDS on the person and personality of this young woman and, frighteningly graphically, in her husband we see Yesterday darrell roodt online dating human condition reach both its nadir and its zenith. The disease is at once catastrophically demoralising and vigorously ennobling. Yesterday's courage in the face of irremediable adversity is tearfully potent. She is a heroine in the true sense of performing heroic actions against the odds.

Illness forces her to strength, fear engenders courage, and in the darkest oppression her spirit seems to soar. Yet the film never descends into self-pity. Pity exists in that very coldness.
