Preposterous rubbish
24 March 2003 | by taipan-1See all my reviews

My suspicion is that this was an undergraduate film script project to write a fairy tale. But even fairy tales need some basis in fact. The lead, Anna, played by Australian actor Miranda Otto, appears to be a longtime local game warden who, incredibly, is unable to speak the language of the area's tribe and ignores basic survival steps ie. you never walk away from a broken-down vehicle in the desert. Her brother, the local priest, is a cardboard cutout racist and disappears from the movie altogether in the last 20 minutes. The plot holes are extraordinary. How Anna suddenly discoveres a cache of poached ivory in her friend's house is simply never explained, the same goes for the significance of the ceremony in the closing minutes of the film when the local tribe pour sand over her and just why an African-American lawyer is living in a small village in Namibia is utterly ignored, apart from a one scene while suggests he is looking for minerals. And the ignorance of the black/white divide in southern Africa makes the entire effort laughable.
