Story of a band of Spanish conquistadors and their ill fated expedition into an unknown fate and the leader's ultimate descent into madness. Brilliantly filmed by Werner Hertzog, Aguirre is masterful cinema utilized with the right effect to create a film masterpiece.

Absolutely agree with the comment below. A haunting film that often uses the power of suggestion to great effect.

A brilliant film by Herzog! He takes us down the Amazon & shows us what it was like for those early discoverers of the new land. Kinski's performance is riveting & the trip has many levels of depths if you're ready for the journey of great acting & filmmaking combined, but if you love Hollywood & I do not, then this film is not for you!
