I've caught this film twice now.. each time by 'accident'.. and I always seem to pick it up at the same point.
It is truly a great film though.
It captivates me.
She speaks about 'her Kikuyu' in a way in which they would have been spoken about at that time
The colonizer and the colonized
A bizarre relationship, summed up in a look.. a look of undying love... in the eyes of her servant in a final scene
It both moved, and disgusted me in equal measure
Yet I couldn't look away.
'Her Kikuyu'. Master and Servant. Perhaps a quintessential ultimate codependent relationship
A very interesting book I hear.. she lived a very interesting life
Bit of a rebel :)
