Reviews
Mine: Maybe I should see this again, but I remember being board to tears by this movie. It has been almost 20 years since I saw it so maybe a rewatch is in order.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Peaceful tribe living 80,000 years ago is attacked by apes and wolves and loses its fire, essential for survival. They don't know how to make fire, so three of their own trek off to find it again. Not the epic intended, but still funny, tense, touching--and fascinating, with the creation of fire the equivalent of our landing astronauts on the moon. Special languages devised by Anthony Burgess, and body languages and gestures by Desmond Morris; the makeup earned an Academy Award. Filmed in Kenya, Scotland, Iceland, and Canada. Panavision.
