We gave it a B

Audience empathy for a German-Jewish family who escapes from the Nazis to safety in Africa, coupled with the proffered charms of wise natives and their mysterious rituals, goes a long way toward making this lyrical travelogue a crowd-pleaser. Then again, the same charms root this Best Foreign Language Film Oscar nominee in movie-Africa.
