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
Kim Basinger's best performance in an otherwise weak movie.
Except for Kim Basinger's performance in this movie there is little to recommend it. The story is biographical but it is somewhat pointless and goes no where as well as being disjointed. The time period is never clear but a lot happens in Kenya during this period and somehow the story never relates to it.
I have never considered Kim Basinger to be an actress, just a sex kitten, but she did show some acting ability in this flick. The tragedy of this movie is that she needlessly appears half nude from a less than revealing angle and it really detracts from the any value the picture had.
But this is a story that should have been left untold. It is a waste of time.
