A writer reminisces his life as he lies dying from an infection in the shadow of Kilimanjaro. Based on the book by Ernest Hemingway. Starring Gregory Peck, Susan Hayward, and Ava Gardner.
This film isn’t one that has a lot of suspenseful action scenes. It’s a man facing the end of life and remembering the good, the bad, and the ugly of his life. This film, like the book, is an autobiographical story of Hemingway. It’s a beautiful story that tells us about life and how there are regrets but also no regrets about decisions that were made. It’s a slow-moving film with brilliant cinematography and visually stunning backdrops. Then you have great actors, Peck, Hayward, and Gardner, to bring these characters to life. This is a film worth watching.
