|Comments||This film contains complex and mature themes that interrogate issues of family, money laundering, humanitarian aid, greed or the love of money, betrayal, murder, abduction and crime, presented within a drama context set in the predominantly Muslin suburb of Mayfair, Johannesburg. The film is laced with a sense of threat and menace, and also within realistic and dark settings that intensify the drama context and may be upsetting, confusing, distressing or inappropriate for viewers below the age of 16. Viewers 16 and older are mature enough to appreciate themes as they have been presented in the film as well as the entertainment value, and not be morally harmed.|

What the Critics say
Herschelle Benjamin SA-misdaaddrama 'Mayfair' boei enduit.
Rozanne Els Mayfair is a much richer blend of themes than what any genre classification (in this instance it is most likely to be labelled a gangster drama) can completely encompass. Oftentimes, the process of integrating multiple plot points that don’t necessarily serve to further the same theme can become a confusing or tedious viewing experience. But the elements of this story are greatly compelling, and Blecher methodically pulls each of these closer together to eventually become a tight and gripping conclusion.
