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!
