Fitzcarraldo

1982 Rated PG 2hr 37m

Klaus Kinski's manic intensity lends itself perfectly to the role of obsessive genius Fitzcarraldo, a rubber baron intent on building an opera house deep within the Peruvian jungle, in this film from Werner Herzog. Capturing both the enormity of the jungle and the human spirit, the film finds cast and crew hauling a steamship over a mountain to achieve their mad goal. For his efforts, Herzog earned Best Director laurels at Cannes Film Festival.
