Tale of colonial life based on the adventures of Karen Blixen. Karen (Meryl Streep) arrives in Africa in 1914 and marries Baron Bror Blixen-Finecke (Klaus Maria Brandauer). Their marriage soon cools into a 'civilised' separation, but Karen finds herself falling in love with the wild, unfamiliar country and its people. Then she meets handsome, fiercely independent hunter Denys Finch Hatton (Robert Redford), and a hesitant romance ensues.

Wonderful show with wonderful scenery.THREE main problems:Overlong.Terrible accent by Meryl Streep and Robert Redford and laughable.

The lady who wrote the previous review has obviously very little knowledge about Danish accents; and even less knowledge about the history of Africa at the turn of the previous century. What she finds 'laughable' I found EXCEPTIONALLY EXCELLENT ACTING BY TWO OF THE WORLD'S BEST!! A must-see for anyone who has a love of history, a respect for nature, and a knowledge of people from countries other than little South Africa!...
