A deserved 2003 Academy Award winner, director Caroline Link's engrossing
'Nowhere In Africa' was similarly acclaimed at numerous festivals worldwide,
including prize winning successes at Karlovy Vary and an astounding five German
Film Awards, Outstanding Feature amongst them.
A beautifully realised World War II-set love story spanning two continents, Nowhere In Africa is the extraordinary true tale of a Jewish family who flee the Nazi regime at the very last moment for a remote farm in Kenya. Torn from her comfortable life in Germany, the shy, five-year-old Regina embraces her new life discovering the magic in the wilderness of the sun-burnt African plains and the initially strange African people who live there. Her parents however find it harder to leave their European roots behind and to adjust to the poverty and isolation of their new home.
Freely adapted from the celebrated novel by Stefanie Zweig, Link's film rigorously avoids sentimentality, instead focusing firmly on the pervading sense of estrangement that afflicts the family members to varying degrees as they struggle to adapt. Engagingly performed and riddled with witty insights and observations, Nowhere In Africa also boasts magnificent wide-screen cinematography from Gernot Roll and a rousing symphonic score from Niki Reiser.
