Reviews
Mine: Some great airial photography of Africa is the only thing interesting about this movie. The two main characters are incredibly dull, sure they are good looking, but that is it. The two most interesting characters are discarded, Redfords partner and the young women that comes to ask advise of Streep. WAY too long.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Exquisite, intelligent romantic drama based on life of Karen Blixen, who married for convenience, moved from Denmark to Nairobi, and fell in love with a British adventurer and idealist (before gaining latter-day fame as author Isak Dinesen). Pollack's film brilliantly captures time and place, with superb performances by Streep and Brandauer, sumptuous photography by David Watkin, and a rich score by John Barry. Film's only fault is overlength--and biggest challenge is asking us to accept Redford as an Englishman. Oscars include Best Picture, Director, Screenplay (Kurt Luedtke, who synthesized five books into one seamless script), Cinematography, and Music Score. Footage added for network TV showing.
