Kuki, a divorced Italian socialite, changes her life after a serious car crash. She accepts a marriage proposal from Paolo Gallmann, a man she doesn't know well, and she moves to Kenya with him and her young son to start a cattle ranch. Challenges beset her, not the least of which is Paulo's love of danger and his leaving for days on end to hunt and fish with pals. She must face fierce storms, roving lions, venomous snakes, and murderous poachers, and she must find accommodation with a neighboring tribe. Her mother entreats her to return home. Can Kuki live her dream, tame Paolo, guide her son safely past the perils and errors of youth, and serve Africa? Written by
When I read all the reviews I could about this movie, including specialized
magazines, I thought to myself that Kim Basinger had a bad dream after the
great LA Confidential, one of my favourite movies of the 90's.
Now that I've seen it, I believe that 'I Dreamed of Africa' was not well
understood. This is a different movie, the story was written to show
dramatic and common scenes of Kuki's life, trying to reveal that all dreams
can bring nightmares. And Kim shows us that she's a mature actress, not only
a sex-symbol. She had no glamour in Africa, but her sensuality is so natural
that I thought to myself that she was the most beautiful animal in Africa.
This film deserved more positive reviews than it had. It's not worse or
better than 'Out Africa'. Only different. And this difference makes it
