Brilliant Film,Scared me as a kid-
20 April 2004 | by dasirenSee all my reviews

Having spent a large part of my life in Kenya, this film made me afraid to set out into the Tsavo for years. Based on Events that I remember the old people talking about

the film integrates those stories with just the right amount

of fright!! The fear that the drought brought was displayed truthfully in this film. It captures the rugged beauty of the Kenyan countryside and people such as no other films made in Kenya have. If you have a fear of animals, this heightens it!
