The African Queen

The critical consensus

With Huston spending most of the shoot big-game hunting, it’s probably cameraman Jack Cardiff who deserves kudos for turning this odd-couple romance into such a colourful escapade through east Africa.

****(*)Neil Smith, Total Film, 23/02/2011

John Huston’s grand, propulsive and plumly-restored slice of Technicolor derring-do.

****(*)Tim Robey, The Telegraph, 03/03/2011

A ripping, gripping yarn, a surprisingly erotic love story and, as it happens, a premonition of Herzog's Fitzcarraldo.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 03/03/2011
