Werner Herzog's gigantic jungle adventure ... Already a piece of German film history.

Peru. Iquitos is a town isolated in the middle of the jungle at the turn of the century. On the outskirts, a few shacks are rotting in the mud. In the center are the splendid houses of the nouveaux-riches rubber barons. It is in this setting, rich in grotesque contrast, that Brian Sweeney Fitzgerald-Fitzcarraldo, as the natives call him-has his dream of bringing together Enrico Caruso and Sarah Bernhardt for one great celebration of Grand Opera.

To finance this fantastic dream, Fitzcarraldo decides to exploit a vast area of rubber tires growing beyond the impassable Ucayala Falls. To circumvent this barrier, he literally has his huge steamboat lifted over a mountain from one branch of the river to the other.
