Quest For Fire (La Guerre Du Feu)

BBBBB

(out of 5)


The most impressive and inspiring film about the dawn of human kind ever made. A clan of prehistoric tribesmen are forced from their homes by invaders, and en route to a new land are terrified when they lose their source of fire, the element they depend on for food and warmth. A trio of men are sent to find more, and on the journey they encounter wonders and dangers before a young girl () from a more advanced civilization shows them how to make fire with wood. Captivating in its painstaking attention to detail, this film will have you convinced that you’ve traveled back in time and are witnessing the story first-hand. Anthony Burgess created the many languages the characters speak, while northern Canadian and west African locations serve as the backdrops for the primitive, barren world that these people inhabit. Surprisingly, the historical accuracy here makes the film not only impressive but also very entertaining.
