User Reviews

Colourful, interesting, suspenseful, big emotion epic drama about the fate of a courageous women

I liked the story about the courageous Katharina von Strahlberg very much. Her adventurous fate in Africa at the outset and during WWI is partly a "who done it" criminal case, partly a love story and a partly family affairs story. Although the story has to deal with many different characters, the main plot would develop a clearly understandable story line. All the main figures receive a good deal of space in the movie to develop in a colorful manner. The alternation of tension climaxes and releases is felicitous. The plot turnarounds keep unpredictable until the very end. Although all the actors would do an excellent job, a special breath of fresh air was the amiable figure of the Scotsman Victor March (excellently played by Pierre Besson), who comes from old Europe and finally finds his peace with a near-natural life in Africa.
