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

‑ 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."
