Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Love stories don't get any more unusual than this."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"The film is pretty, predictable and far too long ..."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"[S]tays true to the essence of the story: a love-inspired urge slowly turning into a tough day-to-day reality."
‑ Boyd van Hoeij, european-films.net
"The film makes excellent use of its African locations, presenting the continent in all its beauty and mystery."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"There is so much foolishness committed in the name of lust, but few as ill conceived as that expressed in "The White Masai.""
‑ Angela Baldassarre, Sympatico.ca
"O filme parece esperar que compartilhemos de seu julgamento preconceituoso e aplaudamos o veredicto de que, apenas por serem quem são, Lemalian e seus conterrâneos não têm quaisquer direitos e merecem nosso desprezo incondicional."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Visually stunning, The White Masai is an unforgettable love story that takes us deep into the heart of Kenya. The course of true love is never smooth, and the story of a Swiss woman who marries a Masai warrior is romance at its most exotic."
