Storyline

When the Noralty oil company ignores warnings about the dangers in the Colombian border area, eight of its employees (Canadians and one US Navajo) working on a pipeline in Ecuador are kidnapped by the well-organized guerrilla which demands a $20,000,000 ransom, refused by the concern, and forces them deep in the Amazonian jungle where they hide for the army. Forty long days of marching trough this green hell gets the hostages in such bad shape that they must finally be brought into an insurgent camp. The Canadian embassy, skeptic except for one RMCP sergeant, can only negotiate about the price... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

On one of the last nights of filming in Edmonton, the temperature was twenty below zero and the entire cast and crew were freezing, so heating bars were brought out and placed around the set. Between scenes, the cast would gather around them to warm up. However, no one noticed that the blue jumpsuits the leads were wearing might not be heat-resistant. It isn't visible in the final film, but at least one pair of blue jumpsuit pants had melted across the front during filming, exposing white lining. See more »

A gripping portrayal of ordinary men in extraordinary times
17 November 2004 | by (Edmonton, Alberta) – See all my reviews

With compassion and honesty, 100 Days in the Jungle tells the story of eight men held for ransom by a group of Columbian rebels. Seven are from Edmonton, Alberta, one is American. I live in Edmonton and watched this story unfold in real life and real time on the pages of my local paper and TV. Both The Edmonton Journal and CBC TV had crews in Ecuador following the real story, as it happened. The film version is an honest portrayal based on the stories of the men, the reporters and those at home in Edmonton. This is a rich tale that has a particular resonance at a time when westerners are seen as a target of kidnap for financial or political gain. It won the Gemini Award for top movie or miniseries. Well worth seeing.
