Product Description

Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times hails this film as being "laced with poignancy and conflict,urgency and compassion." "& I loved this film!" raves Roger Ebert "& this is the kind of movie thatreal people really, really like!" Nowhere In Africa - the critically acclaimed, Academy Award(r) winner - is a story about love, about family, about leaving one home to create another. Spanning two continents, it's the true tale of a Jewish attorney and his family who flee the Nazi regime in 1938 fora remote farm in Kenya. As the war rages on the other side of the world, his relationships with hiswife and daughter become increasingly complicated: they struggle between resisting and embracing their new life, while reaching out to each other.

Both epic and heartbreakingly intimate, Nowhere in Africa begins with a Jewish woman named Jettel Redlich fleeing Nazi Germany with her daughter Regina, to join her husband, Walter, on a farm in Kenya. At first, Jettel refuses to adjust to her new circumstances (she brought with her a set of china dishes and an evening gown), while Regina adapts readily to this new world, forming a strong bond with her father's cook, an African named Owuor. But this is only the beginning of a series of uprootings, and as the surface of their lives is torn away, Walter and Jettel find they have little in common, and must--under tumultuous circumstances--build their marriage anew. With incredible skill and passion, Nowhere in Africa manages to bring you fully into every change in this family's life; it richly deserves the Academy Award® it received in 2002. A powerful, deeply moving film. --Bret Fetzer
