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

Everything in the film rings true, is deeply moving, richly photographed, and wonderfully acted.

It's exactly the sort of import you'd expect to walk off with an Academy Award.

Link creates a complex and fascinating portrait of a marriage under the enormous stress of geographical dislocation and historical trauma.

One very fine film.

The pacing of Nowhere in Africa is a mite drowsy, but there are payoffs for the director's uninsistent touch.

A worthy, complex and nuanced film.

Nowhere in Africa is a movie of many moods and nuances. In addition to being a Holocaust saga, it's a girl's story, a woman's story and the story of a marriage.

Superbly acted and brilliantly lensed, Nowhere In Africa is that hard-to-achieve movie where the small picture counts for more than the bigger one.

A well-acted, exquisitely photographed, plot-jammed movie that sinks into melodrama and reveals too little about the African culture and landscape in which it's set.

An instant family classic to be shared and enjoyed by parents and mature teens.

If there's a love story here, it's the Redlichs' -- and the director's -- love for the stark beauty of Africa.

There's a lot more to Nowhere in Africa -- too much, actually ... Yet even if the movie has at least one act too many, the question that runs through it -- of whether belonging to a place is a matter of time or of will -- remains consistent.

What rescues the film is ... the quality of the acting.
Mar 28, 2003
Nowhere in Africa isn't really a dull film so much as an oddly quaint one that seems to find a comfortable perspective about drastic circumstances.

This consistently absorbing family saga is primarily a safari of the soul.

A good story, exceedingly well told.
