Movie Info

A beautiful Swiss businesswoman leaves her husband for a powerful Masai warrior, whose intense jealousy eventually threatens to destroy their relationship. Corrine was spending two weeks in Kenya with her husband when she fell in love with the handsome Lketinga, whose tribal lifestyle stood in stark contrast to her urban upbringing. Despite the fact that he is illiterate and the two can barely communicate, Lketinga and Corrine soon wed. Afflicted with malaria and hepatitis, Corrine does her best to adjust to life among the Masai people, and even runs a grocery store in order to support her new community. Shortly after Corrine becomes a mother, however, Lketinga grows increasingly suspicious and domineering. Eventually, the realization that she and her husband are no longer in love prompts Corrine to gather her daughter, pack and pack their bags for a permanent vacation in Switzerland. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

  • O filme parece esperar que compartilhemos de seu julgamento preconceituoso e aplaudamos o veredicto de que, apenas por serem quem são, Lemalian e seus conterrâneos não têm quaisquer direitos e merecem nosso desprezo incondicional.

  • The film is pretty, predictable and far too long ...

  • There is so much foolishness committed in the name of lust, but few as ill conceived as that expressed in "The White Masai."

  • Plodding, stolid German adaptation of best-selling book fails to engage with any of the complexities of its subject but the scenery is beautiful.

Audience Reviews for Die Weisse Massai (The White Massai)

I could never quite decide if this woman was really brave or really stupid, but anyhow, it was certainly compelling viewing!
