    Nowhere in Africa | Fleeing Nazi Germany, many Jewish families found that a new life was as difficult as any hardship they had previously known. This German drama, based on a book by Stephanie Zweig, tells of one family's struggle as Walter Redlich (Merab Ninidze), his wife Jettel (Juliane Kohler), and their young daughter Regina (Karoline Eckertz) flee Germany for British occupied Nairobi. Nowhere in Africa reminded me a lot of Chocolat, the drama about a young French girl and her parents in Africa and the relationships the girl and her mother have with an intelligent, self-confident houseboy. Both films are about sexual politics, racism and relationships in which one person loves another more and thus becomes vulnerable.
