Link's movie is an absorbing tale of cultural displacement and adjustment. It's also a remarkably complex examination of a marriage.

Nowhere in Africa is long enough that each character is meticulously studied and developed while Link takes the time also to provide wonderfully patient, artistic moments

Una buena historia para decir un par de cosas sobre el desarraigo, los lazos familiares, y la chance de empezar una nueva vida siempre que sea necesario.

A pretty but unsatisfying trifle, its graceful camerawork and fine acting unable to make an oddly flat story shine.

The acting is wonderful throughout, and director Carole Link has crafted a tale with the dramatic scope of a great epic. The English Patient comes to mind.

While Roman Polanski's The Pianist may be the most shattering film to deal with the Holocaust, Nowhere in Africa may well be the most human.

Offers an admirably understated study of the family's constantly shifting desires, fears and allegiances.

A beautifully shot and honestly melancholy drama marred by a meandering script that has trouble deciding whose story is being told.
