"Amazingly beautiful, well-acted jungle drama details entrepreneur Fitzcarraldo's attempts to mine rubber in order to raise money to accomplish his dream - to bring grand opera to a tiny town in Peru. Girlfriend Cardinale buys him a boat (to help with the mining), but unfortunately can't go on the journey, which ends up with Fitz and hundreds of Indians physically dragging the huge riverboat over a mountain. Klaus Kinski's performance is top of the line, very good direction, some very memorable s"

10 Movies to Watch (12 movies items)

" Part of that unique genre, the "extreme film", along with works such as Apocalypse Now and Sorcerer. These films all show filmmakers willing to travel to dangerous lengths to paint unprecedented canvases and test their own abilities as storytellers and dream purveyors. Herzog's film might feel slightly disjointed at times. But the scope at which he is working and the heart that drives both him and Fitzcarraldo allow the film to rise memorably above any shortcomings. A classic of the genre, "

My movie year 2012 (703 movies items)

"DVD Klaus Kinski haluaa rakentaa oopperan keskelle viidakkoa ja siinä samalla raahaa laivan vuoren yli. Nupin sekoittavaa kamaa, jonka suurimmat vahvuudet Herzogin tuntien löytyvät kuvallisesta ja musikaalisesta annista ja onhan Fitzcarraldon maailmassa tietty sitä samaa uniikkia fiilistä, joka näkemilleni Wernerin leffoille vuokratilaa sydämestäni on haalinut. Kandee uskoa unelmiinsa, vaikka välillä ne saavuttaakseen on oltava valmis uhraamaan asioita."
