Visit to a Chief's Son
(1974)

Country: USA

Genre: Adventure

IMDb

Synopsis

A mixture of anthropology, travelogue, and social commentary. The story of scientist and his attempts to get close to the Masai people of Kenya. His son causes problems, and an educated-in-London Masai further complicates matters by messing with Mulligan's preconceived notions about 'the natives'. The movie takes a serious look at the pressures put on tribal peoples by modernism and progress.

A charming film about the need for boys to be given freedom in order to mature and gain responsibility, and the way in which, in this regard, western societies might learn something from the way things are handled by supposedly more 'primitive' societies such as that of the Masai. John Philip Hogdon is superb and engaging in the lead role. A criminally underrated classic.
