Overview

Angus Buchan's award-winning autobiographical novel is adapted for the big screen by director Reghardt van den Bergh, who traces the story of the rugged South African farmer as he endures remarkable adversity on his quest to discover the true power of faith. Set in the tempestuous hills of the KZN midlands, Faith Like Potatoes follows Buchan from his early attempts to achieve material success, through the personal transformation that follows a series of seemingly insurmountable losses, and a close friendship forged with his faithful Zulu farmhand. Like the potatoes planet in his field, Buchan's faith remains hidden until the harvest, when he learns how the power of faith can help him to begin the personal healing process, and become more accepting of others.

    Great Movie

    It is a beautiful movie and it gives us strength to go on with life and knowing that each day is a new one and that we need to be positive always. We were born to be happy, in fact we are happy, however we are always complaining about life and we never are pleased with what we have in life.
