Profile of Fitzcarraldo

The mood of Fitzcarraldo is offbeat, exciting, and suspenseful. The plot centers around mistaken identities, following your dreams, and an obsessive quest. It is a foreign, adventure, and drama movie. In approach, Fitzcarraldo is serious and realistic. The pacing is slow. It takes place, at least partly, in a jungle. Fitzcarraldo is set in Peru. It happens in the 1900s. The movie is known for being a Cannes festival winner, essential viewing, and critically acclaimed.
