At 1:36:00, the Bedouin Sheik holds and offers the lamb's head with his left hand. This is contrary to all etiquette, as the right hand is used for eating while the left one is, shall we say, the wiping hand. See more »
For quite a while I kept wondering if Herzog is able to make at least one good movie without Klaus Kinski. Kinski loathed Herzog. In one of his books, he described him as completely clueless, arrogant and as a ruthless, dumb and incompetent creep. Herzog, on the other hand, called Kinski a mad egomaniac. Well, both were right, but while the madness made Kinski a genius actor, the cluelessness made Herzog an insufferably bad director.
This movie proves it. There is no storytelling whatsoever, just abysmally bad, cheesy dialogue (book: Werner Herzog) and nothing even remotely interesting. The photography is average at best. The story is about non-existing.
On top of it all you have Nicole Kidman who moves like she got something up her spine and who apparently has disimproved her formerly nice features with botox.
To summarize: wooden acting, poor dialogues, no story, no storytelling and average photography. It looks and feels like the work of an incompetent director and writer.
Avoid at all costs.
