Saw this today, really enjoyed it! I had heard good things but didn't really know much beyond the synopsis.

I have to say, I really like the way it is shot, in a part documentary fashion, it really works. And I love the road the main character goes on, the justifications for the alien treatment, and setting it in South Africa was a stroke of genius!
