Fitzcarraldo

BR Deutschland 1981/1982 Spielfilm

Summary

Fitzcarraldo
Fitzcarraldo is the story of an obsessive dreamer at the time of the rubber boom at the turn of the century who, in the depths of the Amazon jungle and beset by dangers of all kinds, has visions of presenting grand opera, with the works of Verdi and a unique performance by Caruso and Sarah Bernhardt.

Stung to the bone by swarms of mosquitoes, parched by the heat and fever, he nevertheless achieves the impossible. Using the labor of hundreds of native Indians, he manages to drag an enormous river boat across a mountain from one river to another so that he is able to open up an immense new rubber area which will provide him with the money necessary to realize his dream.
