It took 8 years for Fingers for Marseilles to get to the big screen

With the project having taken over eight years to complete and reach SA cinemas, Michael says there were easier ways of completing the film and getting to the audience faster, but that would have altered the way in which they chose to tell the story.

"There were many times when we could have made the movie if we had made it mostly in English or if we put a couple of American stars with South African accents in and that sort of stuff. We just always knew that would just make, not only a weird film, but also not the film we were trying to make and sort of take away all the integrity of what's cool about it in the first place."

Set as a Western, Five Fingers For Marseilles follows the story of a group of friends who work to keep their small village safe from corrupt officials.
