Vir Altyd: Hold tight to your heart, because this movie will steal it


If you want to treat yourself to a wonderful romantic adventure film that’s set in the heart of Africa, then Donnalee Roberts and Ivan Botha’s film Vir Altyd is the movie for you.

Launching on the 13th of March 2017 on ShowMax, Vir Altyd is set to charm TV watchers across the globe. Heralded as the ‘most successful’ Afrikaans film to date, it has already earned more than R15 million at the box office, and now you can watch (and re-watch) it in the comfort of your living room.

Start streaming the movie and get ready to immerse yourself in the tale of Nina and Hugo, two childhood sweethearts that drift slowly apart as life takes them in different directions, only to meet again at Nina’s fairy-tale wedding.

Fortunately for these star-crossed lovers, Nina’s wedding turns into a disaster when Nina’s fiancé abandons her at the altar. After a wild night of partying Nina persuades Hugo to join her on her honeymoon. But the story doesn’t stop there, things heat up as they arrive in Mauritius and become entangled in the lives of other couples on the island.

Set against the tropical island of Mauritius, these two leading actors and other industry veterans like Elize Cawood and Ilse Roos persuade the audience to believe in the enduring nature of true love.
