beautiful cinematography, good acting , I thoroughly enjoyed this. Not for those who like action...
A german family in Kenya goes through the upheavals of internemnt and conflict as to where they belong.
Such a marvellous movie. We were enthralled by the marvellous acting of the main African character and the wonderful child actress. An interesting and always involving movie about educated Jews fleeing Nazi Germany to work in menial jobs on farms in Africa. LOVED it.
a beautiful story,sad yet uplifting,inset in the era of Nazie uprising in Germany, the wife and daughter migrate to Africa to join her husband, and the axcepting of the life and people there
Magical and gorgeous movie. The african landscapes are breathtaking and the characters memorable and believable. It's one of the best movies I've seen in years!
Great movie - beautifully acted, riveting film - dont let the subtitles put you off.
If Africa is in your blood you will enjoy this movie. The scenery, the sounds and depicts the true conflict of war and the affects on families. Worth watching
An excellent movie. Easy to follow and understand. The desperation, anxiety and fear came through in the acting, which was excellent. We enjoyed this movie thoroughly.
Xenophobia is a key element in this movie
NOWHERE IN AFRICA proved to be a greatly appreciated bio-flick with good characterisation, seamless
back-flashes, good acting and great scenery. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Was not aware this was in German, I didn't enjoy this at all, very disapointed!
Great story, thought there might be more english.
An excellent movie that gives a true depiction of what hardships were faced by Jewish migrants whose families were being percuted in Germany. Similar trials and tribulations are encountered today and I was truly moved by the courage shown by the those involved
Excellant movie, not a movie for everyone but I couldn't stop watching this movie once I started, yes a bit slow to start with..
Quite an interesting story of a Jewish family escaping Germany to Kenya just before WW2 and then being interned by the British when war broke out. Harsh life in Kenya, full of interesting relationships within and outside family.
Quite slow moving film, not particularly rivetting. Story was tinged with sadness and loss but I think the director's focus should have remained on the story of the little girl and not focussed as much on the relationship of her parents.
Great movie! Wonderful scenary of Africa. Story told showing the difficult times escaping to a new country and coping with a completely new/different life.
A great story. Brings a unique perspective to Kenya for me. Don't let the subtitles put you off.
very enjoyable story of a family transplanted from germany to Kenya at the start of WW2. beautiful scenery and great acting from the key cast members.
A good movie definitely worth watching.
I'm glad I didn't know this had subtitles because I might not have hired it and missed out on a fabulous film.
What a good film. Not the usual war film. Had to laugh a lot about some remarks about the English, as I have experienced almost the same (I am German).
It was a fantastic movie. Great visuals. Worth a watch on a lazy Sunday arvo...quite long.
Would have enjoyed it more had it been in English
Very enjoyable and informative of the situation of Jews outside of Germany as well as within and the drama of not knowing what was taking place back home.
Good start, a bit slow to develop, but fell flat at the end.
Quite an interesting historical epic, excellent acting and contrasts between the cultures and environment of Germany and Kenya in the 30's and 40's. The film's message of caring humanity shines through strongly.
A well told story, beautifully filmed.
Excellent film, based on a true story, centralised theme is the hardship of emmigrating and in times of war. Some touching insights into cultural differences between everyday life in Africa for Eurpoeans.
Really enjoyed this movie. Although at times a bit slow. Interesting comment on relationships.
A beautifully constructed piece that deals gently and compassionately with issues of dislocation, sense of self and learning.
Interesting for its illustration of human's ability to adapt and even love alien environments. Beautifully photographed in Kenya and thoughtfully cast. Based on a biographical book, it focuses on the marital relationship more than the adventure of relocation and the new life in Africa but it is still fascinating viewing.
A good story, well acted on how we and our values are profoundly changed by life's crisis.
Rivetting viewing. Grim but tight story line.
Takes a long while to find its feet, but fairly satisfying after that in a "quality telemovie" kind of way
A well crafted and intersting movie. Great character development type of performances. Setting is fascinating. Lesser known actors are excellent. A pleasure to watch.
Totally involving - I found that I really cared what happened to this family.
Fantastic film. Poignant, a feast for the eyes, brilliantly acted and a great story to boot. Loved it.
One of the best films I have ever seen. Fascinating story, beautiful music, superb acting, outstanding cinematography!
A slow but absorbing film. The storyline is unusual but plausible. Fine performances by all the actors add to the quality of the film, as does the Kenyan setting.
This was an unexpectedly good film.Well drected and acted. A wonderful and uplifting story.
