High Fantasy

A group of young friends on a camping trip, deep in the South African countryside wake up to discover they have all swapped bodies. Their individual cultural heritage and experience of these strange happenings couldn't be more different; and stranded in the wilderness, they will have to navigate a personal-political labyrinth if their friendship and their lives are ever to be the same again. The stage is set for comedy to turn to tragedy, for the fantasy of South Africa's 'Rainbow Nation' to become a painful awakening.

High Fantasy has a great concept, but it's unfortunately poorly executed and often exhausting. It's frustrating to see a film this inventive and this willing to dive into these arguments lose itself along the way.

"High Fantasy" is a movie for the woke set in 2017; it's about the exploration of the beliefs we espouse on the surface, art that bores beneath that surface to mine its characters' true feelings. It's therefore uncomfortable to watch, but that's natural.
