Title: Five Fingers for Marseilles

A member of the Five Fingers returns to colonial Marseilles after fleeing police aggression two decades before, and finds the town under a new threat. This Movie is a brilliant adaptation of the “Western” film genre to South Africa (whose frontier history is sometimes compared to that of the American West).
