News & Interviews for I Dreamed of Africa
Critic Reviews for I Dreamed of Africa
I Dreamed of Africa boasts the majestic landscapes and wildlife that explain why anyone would be spellbound by the place. But the story is fitfully episodic and the jerky editing doesn't help a bit.
Basinger handles her role capably, but is absurdly miscast as an Italian, and French actor Perez fails to create credible chemistry with his co-star.
It's neither epic enough to fulfill a grand scope, nor intimate enough to be an overpowering emotional experience.
This film, based on a true story, transcends its handsomeness to present a subtle portrait of a woman's growing consciousness.
In the opening segment of I Dreamed Of Africa, Kim Basinger breaks her leg. The rest of the film is so dull, you can almost hear the bone heal.
Audience Reviews for I Dreamed of Africa
This true drama based on the memoirs of Kuki Gallmann was so emotionally and sadly when she got homestead on a farm in Africa with her new husband and young son.
I don't think this was the best movie. It lacked in the story department as well as acting. Although it did have great landscapes, it still fails to impress.
Kim Basinger was excellent in this. The whole film is wonderfully exotic and beautifully shot.
