5.0 out of 5 stars nostalgia perfectly played, 20 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I grew up on a farm in Kenya in the 1950s. The heroine of this lovely film (based on the book by Elspeth Huxley) also grew up on a farm in the highlands of Kenya, north of Nairobi, in the rich red volcanic soil of the Rift Valley. Times gone by. A long and lingering, loving re-telling of the white settlers' stories, their encounters with the Kikuyu and other tribes, their romances, tragedies, triumphs, attitudes, prejudices. The film does not overly-glorify the colonial settler period, at least to my taste. It is portrayed fairly accurately, for good and bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars exquisite, 20 Sept. 2011
I listened to this recording on a Virgin Atlantic flight across the Atlantic. I was not familiar with this piece of music. The recording is excellent, the music sublime. Highly recommended. And thanks to Virgin for such a enthralling selection. I am just an ordinary passenger and don't work for them.
