Rip Roaring jungle adventure.

Sheer brutality and humiliation is the daily lot of the slaves on the rubber plantations in S America at the turn of the 20th century. This is a little cracker of a film, quite notorious, but it really is more to do with what you think you may have seen. Jorge Riveros character is just a little too flawed to be the hero, so its left to fabulous Fabio Testi to be the main man to cheer on. Florinda Bolken pops up as an evil rubber traders wife. Unearth and adore.
