The most acclaimed motion picture of 1985 stars Robert Redford and Meryl Streep in one of the screen's great epic romances. Directed by Oscar® winner Sydney Pollack, Out of Africa is the fascinating true story of Karen Blixen, a strong-willed woman who, with her philandering husband (Klaus Maria Brandauer), runs a coffee plantation in Kenya, circa 1914. To her astonishment, she soon discovers herself falling in love with the land, its people and a mysterious white hunter (Redford). The masterfully crafted, breathtakingly produced story of love and loss earned Oscars® for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay (based on material from another medium), Cinematography, Original Score, Art Direction (Set Decoration) and Sound.
Out Of Africa
This is a peotry written on cellulide. Breathtaking cinematography, flawless acting, superb direction. Pollock made many film but he will always be rememberd for this film. The romance of Karen Blixen and her love of Africa still lives in Karen district - named after her - just outside Nairobi and her restored house which is a museum now. As for the film, I can watch it oer and over again and that is why I am downloading it on my ipod.
A lump in my throat and a tear in my eye
Every time I watch it. It was filmed opposite my house in Kenya and I was an extra at the age of 13. Africa is in my blood, the sights, the sounds of the people, the smell of approaching rain. All of these are so well depicted in this film it is a true masterpiece.
A never forgetful movie
It is my favourite movie .
