A journey through unspoilt Africa
3 May 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Photographer and animal collector Ron Shanin takes us through the dark continent, exploring its immense diversity (whoever knew such diversity existed) ranging from scorching deserts to the frozen heights of Mt. Kilimanjaro. It takes us through the life of the average African native and paints a colorful picture of life amidst struggle against all odds. We have always expected Africa to surprise us one way or the other, the movie lives up to its expectations in providing the surprise element that keeps you wide-eyed in front of the screen wanting more yet not knowing what to expect next. Africa has been known as an extremely tough place to survive, and the movie does well to exemplify it. The volcanic eruption atop Mt. Kilimanjaro is just the icing on the cake, towards the end.
