Stander (2003)

Directed by Bronwen Hughes
Starred Thomas Jane, David O'Hara, Dexter Fletcher, Deborah Kara Unger ...
2003, South Africa & Canada & Germany & United Kingdom, English with some Afrikaan & Zulu dialogues

If we would make a world heist movies tour, this movie has to be our destination for Republic of South Africa. 

This one has a pretty political standing. It doesn't start so, but it evolves into so :) And it absolutely deserves attention.

A slow pace, political and different heist movie. The most shocking part is that it is based on a true story.

You can see this movie in some 'Top Heist Movies' listings. Particularly for the listings enjoy 'alternative' robbery movies.
