This hard-hitting film won an Oscar in the year it was released - and deservedly so. In the street slang of South Africa's Johannesburg, "Tsotsi" means gang member, and the story here follows one such gangster as he goes about his life of violent crime and mindless thuggery. But when a carjacking goes nightmarishly wrong, he finds himself looking after a baby boy - and the responsibility for this new life means he starts to take a long, hard look at his own. Make no mistake, Tsotsi is a powerful movie, and it does contain depressingly realistic scenes of violence - but it's also a film with a hugely important message.
