Fascinating drama
14 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is beautifully done and exquisite to watch from the beginning of the credits to the final shot. The performances are consistently extremely fine. Angie Dickenson, Peter Finch and Roger Moore head the cast, but each of the supporting characters are also perfectly cast and compelling. The exotic nature of the small village in the Belgian Congo with its primitive leaders and the varying stories of the appealing villagers present a perfect complement to the fundamental story. The basic plot consists of an interesting dilemma for the heroine whose profoundly held religious values contradict human beings' nature. She must deal with that conflict and resolve it in a plot that never loses its power.
