Fine performances.
21 June 1999 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

Fine performances from Quinn and Hawthorne, and an hilarious cameo from Edward Fox, make this film work. I also learnt things about Stanley and Livingstone that I didn't know before. But the piece plays a little too much like a history lesson, and is rather too reverential towards its subjects, especially Livingstone. Well, if not excitingly, shot in London and Africa.
