Schlafkrankheit (Sleeping Sickness)
A German doctor (Pierre Bokma) battling Sleeping Sickness in rural Cameroon fears that he will be a stranger in his own country as the end of his post draws near, and he prepares to move back home with his wistful wife, and their teenage daughter. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Shot in Cameroon, the multi-prism film is thoroughly European in its perspective of Africa, the real star, while calling into question Western attitudes toward developing nations."
‑ Kent Turner, Film-Forward.com
"Trans-global cross-currents and the continued practice of neo-colonialism are what's at stake in Ulrich Köhler's haunting, oneiric Sleeping Sickness."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Slant Magazine
