Synopsis

After the death of her brother, Rose Sayer must flee German East Africa and finds the only safe conveyance left: a dilapidated river steamboat. The ship is run by the grumpy and usually drunk Charlie, who goes toe to toe with the imperious, straight-laced Rose throughout their perilous journey.

MUBI's take

Behold three legends of the American cinema: Humphrey Bogart, Katharine Hepburn and director John Huston! Bogie won an Oscar for this role, in which he portrays an ultra-alcoholic version of his famous archetype. An immortal classic about people who come together under unimaginable circumstances.
