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.

Plodding, stolid German adaptation of best-selling book fails to engage with any of the complexities of its subject but the scenery is beautiful.
