This is one of those movies where you expect (from the trailer) that it may be an interesting examination of how civilizations clash.
Unlike "The Gods Must be Crazy", there is no heart to this movie. The main character (played by Eriq Ebouaney) is most like Rod Taylor in "The Time Machine (1960)", someone who assumes his greater knowledge (the benefit of his "higher" civilization) allows him to know how best to act. It's a worn concept, best put to rest.
Lessons are not learned, casting is ragged (why is the pygmy love-interest a foot taller than the rest of the tribe?) and the movie ends suddenly, as if the budget ran out.
