A Complex View of Albert Schweitzer
10 June 2002 | by (Washington DC) – See all my reviews

This film is superb and deeply moving. Andre Wilms, Marisa Berenson, Magalay Bertly and the rest of the cast give us deeply memorable acting performances drawing out the essence of the characters involved in this story. This film shows the complex nature of Dr. Schweitzer including his patronizing and arrogant attitude towards the Africans he is there to help and his deep devotion and love for them at the same time. You are forced to ask the question as to why people are missionaries. You are forced to ask why the colonial powers never appreciated the rich culture they were so intent on exploiting for their own ends. The script is simply one of those that make you feel good about spending the time watching the film. Check your local library if they provide films and see if you can find this film. It is excellent and highly recommended.
