“The White Masai is a gorgeous film of incredible beauty: it will make your heart sing.”
Toronto International Film Festival
At once a captivating romance and a breath-taking travelogue into the Kenyan outback, The White Masai carries us on an epic journey.
Based on the autobiography of Corrine Hofmann, one of the most popular books in Europe of the past decade, it tells the unbelievable – yet true – fish-out-of-water tale of a white European woman who becomes the wife of a Masai warrior. The exotic urban jungle of Mombasa – where the two first fall in love – and the tiny village surrounded by majestic landscapes where they make their home provide a backdrop that is nothing short of extraordinary.
When Swiss-German tourist Carola (Nina Hoss) finds herself falling for the handsome and proud Masai warrior Lemalian, she follows him to his remote tribal community. Despite their seemingly insurmountable cultural and language differences and the many bureaucratic hurdles thrown their way, Carola is determined to make things work. When she starts a grocery stores, buys a car and begins to adapt to this radically new environment, it looks like their relationship may flourish.
With a similar sweeping nature as Nowhere In Africa, The White Masai is a visually knockout adventure-romance of wonderful sensitivity.
