Herzog's razor-sharp attention to the minutiae of both Fitzcarraldo's madness and the jungle's corresponding apathy and enormity makes the film a breathtaking metaphor for civilization's impact on the natural world. The documentary style of the film (the cast and crew actually hauled the boat over the mountain) gives the tale an urgency and suspense that, combined with Kinski's bravado performance and Herzog's striking sense of landscape, make FITZCARRALDO an unforgettable experience.
A man is obsessed with the dream of building an opera house in the Peruvian jungle. To fund the project he has the idea of hauling a steamship over a mountain and into a river tributary where he can achieve a monopoly in the rubber trading business.
