Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes (Aguirre: The Wrath of God)

Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes (Aguirre: The Wrath of God) (1972)

How specific!

In the sixteenth century, Spanish conquistador Aguirre, suffering from a God complex, leads a foolhardy search down the Amazon river for the legendary city of gold, El Dorado. This dreamlike journey, which has echoes of Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, exposes man’s folly in the face of the forces of nature.
