Bella y sincera, la pose queda para las interpretaciones y para algunas líneas muy 'self eco conscious' de los indígenas. El alemán pueblerino y el gringo bostoniano resumen dos enfoques con poca diferencia. El olvido juguetón de Karamakate media estupendo entre ambos.

A very good movie

Even though it is a rather obscure feature, since I kept hearing some great things about this flick, my father especially loved it, I was really eager to check the damned thing. Well, I wasn’t disappointed, that’s for sure. To be honest, I still think the structure was actually rather straightforward though.

" 30.1. GIGANTORHYNCHUS - HÄNEN VALINTANSA Amazonilla vaikuttavat valkoiset valloittajat, käärmejumala ja joen mutkitteleva muoto veivät meidät loisten ja matojen maailmaan. Jumalaisen kasvin etsimisestä kahtena eri aikana kertova elokuva näyttää, miten valkoiset jättävät jälkensä viidakon uumenissa eläviin ihmisiin. Ensimmäisenä paikalle saapunut tutkija haluaa ihan oikeasti löytää kasvin tieteen nimissä hyvää tarkoittaen. Hyvän tarkoittaminen ei kuitenkaan johda siihe"

" Notes: I wasn’t disappointed, that’s for sure. To be honest, I still think the structure was actually rather straightforward though. Indeed, it was pretty much following the standard road-trip formula with the traditional rules of the genre including 2 characters from different backgrounds clashing during their travel. Still, beside this rather standard structure, it was such a fascinating and rather unique look on the Amazon and the people living there. Above all, the thing I probably lo"

"Dull and confusing. The story around the Amazonian and the two European scientists simply was not interesting enough to hold my interest. Noteworthy for me mainly for the scenery of the Amazon and not much else. I can see why people can praise the film but for me it just isn't that memorable at all. "
