Martin and Hazel Quarrier are small-town fundamentalist missionaries sent to the jungles of South America to convert the Indians. Their remote mission was previously run by the Catholics, before the natives murdered them all. They are sent by the pompous Leslie Huben, who runs the missionary effort in the area but who seems more concerned about competing with his Catholic 'rivals' than in the Indians themselves. Hazel is terrified of the Indians while Martin is fascinated. Soon American pilot Lewis Moon joins the Indian tribe but is attracted by Leslie's young wife, Andy. Can the interaction of these characters and cultures, and the advancing bulldozers of civilization, avoid disaster? Written by
Moon, you're under the influence of a dangerous drug, we need to know where you are.

I think this movie is one of the most incredibly un-noticed movies I've ever seen. It has some awesomely spectacular cinematic scenes, a great 'play' and dialogue script. Emotionally driven and wonderfully shot, taking you into the minds of the ensemble of characters, yet leaving you hanging on the edge of insanity. Tom Berenger is a perfect cast as Lewis Moon. All the principle cast; John Lithgow as Leslie Huben, puts in the usual stellar performance one would expect from Lithgow. Aidan Quinn and Kathy Bates just are the roles they portray as Martin Quarrier and Hazel Quarrier, Tom Waits as Wolf is just another piece of master casting and even Daryl Hannah as Andy Huben is convincing in this particular role, who knows, perhaps she can act. Essentially it is just an all round marvelous piece of stimulating and provocative entertainment film making. Why this movie is not well known and why it is so hard to get hold of is beyond me.
From One Movie Maker to another; Congratulations Hector Babenco and Jean-Claude Carriere and their brilliant cast ensemble.
