Jungle Fever
7 November 2001 | by (brighton, ma) – See all my reviews

This is a modest, exceptionally made sleeper that ought to be better known than it is. The search for a missing explorer and a lost treasure is what send its hero and his various guides and helpers downriver in a boat. Robin Hughes is sturdy as the one English-speaker, and it is he who narrates the story. That this is also a true story helps a good deal. It is the sort of thing Disney often did, but without the occasional gruesomeness, and also without the naturalism, which is here most appealing, and giving this movie, for all its ups and downs,--in all that senses of those words--a certain heart and air of genuine mystery.
