Fitzcarraldo - cinema review

admission free

(Federal Republic of Germany 1981)
directed by Werner Herzog, starring Klaus Kinski, Claudia Cardinale, Peter Berling
colour, 157', 35mm, Italian dubbed version

Brian Sweeney Fitzgerald, known as Fitzcarraldo, has a mad dream: he wants to build a Grand Opera house in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest. In order to do that, he has to defy both Nature and the area's indigenous community, by pulling a boat up the side of a hill. Four years of shootings, deaths, injuries to crew members, and gigantic financial problems: the result is Herzog's most visionary work. The director said: "If I abandon this project I would be a man without dreams and I don't want to live like that: I live my life or I end my life with this project".
