Fitzcarraldo 4.0 from 0 reviews
view all

Although he failed to build a railroad across South America, Fitzcarraldo is determined to build an opera house in the middle of the Amazon jungles and have Enrico Caruso sing there. Based on a true story of a charismatic Irishman's impossible quest at the turn of the century. Of note: No special effects were used in this movie--everything you see actually occurred during filming, including hauling a large boat over a mountain.
