South Africa-set romantic comedy - and bearer of probably the coolest movie name of the year- Fanie Fourie's Lobola has been released on VOD and we've got the sweet-natured trailer for you to check out.

The story follows Fanie, an Afrikaans man who falls in love with Dinky Magubane, a beautiful Zulu. The movie explores the cultural divides of an evolving South Africa and the idea of Lobola - the dowry that must be paid to a Zulu bride.

Check out the charming trailer below:

As Shakespeare preached 450 years ago, the course of true love never did run smooth - but it can break down barriers.

Written and directed by Henk Pretorius, Fanie Fourie's Lobola has already won big on the film festival circuit, nabbing the 2013 Seattle Film Festival Best Film gong as well as the Audience Choice for Best Comedy at the Sedona International Film Festival.

High praise indeed, but praise that is thoroughly deserved.
