Out of Africa is drawn from the life and writings of Danish author Isak Dinesen, who during the time that the film's events occured was known by her married name, Karen Blixen-Flecke. For convenience's sake, Karen (Meryl Streep) has married Baron Bor Blixen-Flecke (Klaus Maria Brandauer). In 1914, the Baron moves himself and his wife to a plantation in Nairobi, then leaves Karen to her own devices as he returns to his womanizing and drinking. Soon, Karen has fallen in love with charming white hunter Denys Finch Hatton (Robert Redford), who prefers a no-strings relationship. A woman who prides herself on her independence, Blixen finds herself unhappily in thrall to a aloof man – and doubly unhappy for living out such a cliché situation. Although Redford received a lion's share of criticism for his too-American performance, Streep has rarely been better, and the film's perfectly measured pace is offset by David Watkin's stunning location photography.

La Mia Africa è in definitiva un lungo reportage che diventa nello stesso tempo "romanzo", perché ricco del tessuto, dei contenuti e delle narrazioni tipiche dei capolavori della Letteratura Classica. La Blixen, osservatrice nata e narratrice straordinaria, ha consegnato alla Storia grazie al suo enorme talento narrativo un volume preziosissimo, che andrebbe letto, riletto e studiato nelle scuole di ogni ordine e grado, a dispetto del film omonimo, melenso perché basato essenzialmente sulla storia d'amore "adultera" della protagonista.

Orson Welles’s first color film and final completed fictional feature, The Immortal Story is a moving and wistful adaptation of a tale by Isak Dinesen. Welles stars as a wealthy merchant in nineteenth-century Macao, who becomes obsessed with bringing to life an oft-related anecdote about a rich man who gives a poor sailor a small sum of money to impregnate his wife. Also starring an ethereal Jeanne Moreau, this jewel-like film, dreamily shot by Willy Kurant and suffused with the music of Erik Satie, is a brooding, evocative distillation of Welles’s artistic interests – a story about the nature of storytelling and the fine line between illusion and reality.

Un po' pellegrinaggio e un po' seduta spiritica, questo libro porta dalla Sardegna di Grazia Deledda all'America di Marguerite Yourcenar, dalla Francia di Colette all'Oriente di Alexandra David-Néel, dall'Africa alla Danimarca di Karen Blixen, all'Inghilterra di Virginia Woolf. Un lunghissimo viaggio in case-museo che, attraverso mobili e suppellettili, stanze e giardini raccontano la storia sentimentale delle più significative scrittrici del Novecento. Da Parigi alla Provenza, dal Kenya al Maine, da Copenhagen al Tibet, Sandra Petrignani le cerca nei loro oggetti, interroga i loro diari, la poltrona in cui si sedevano, il portafortuna da cui non si separavano, ma anche (in alcuni casi) le persone che ancora conservano un ricordo vivo di loro. Così il viaggio, concretissimo, diventa favoloso, un giro del mondo dove a ogni tappa è come se le protagoniste in persona aprissero la porta…
