A true cinematic treasure.
22 October 2013 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This is the film version of "La Aventura Equinoccial De Lope De Aquirre " written by Ramon J. Sender, with a historical basis. I think one of the most startling episodes in the history of exploration, especially considering that the aim of these men was a real fantasy. In the sixteenth century, on the other side of the world, assembled in two pieces of wood, from Peru to the mouth of the Amazon ... It's really impressive.

Until now know that in Spain would have made a big production, so well done about the legend of "El Dorado " . But the reality is that I was surprised. Not a single large production of adventures, of course with an atmosphere of the time, costume, decoration.... in my opinion, unparalleled in Spanish cinema. Not to mention a soundtrack that hypnotizes both Renaissance pieces that move the viewer to the time as part of Wagner's passionate. There is only adventures, but intelligently delves into topics such as ambition, power and madness.

It's inexcusable ignorance of this film, you have to give out because it is a cinematic treasure as many other works in Spain, many moviegoers ignore its existence.

Excellent leadership, excellent script and excellent acting, especially by Omero Antonutti , better than the great Klaus Kinski in the previous version of 1972 , in the character of Lope de Aguirre whose madness goes " in crescendo"
