Storyline

The film tells the epic story of an expedition that took place between 1560 and 1561, headed by Pedro de Ursúa, in search of "El Dorado." The territory they explored subsequently became Colombia. Three hundred men sold their property and souls to travel down the biggest and least known river in the world. After the rebellion of Lope de Aguirre (who took over command) against Philip II, the king of Spain, this expedition became one of the best-known episodes in the conquest of "The New World." Accompanied by a team of all types, Lope de Aguirre's adventure will end in tragedy, exposing the full range of human miseries. Written by Lolafilms

Saura and the conquest
27 January 2015 | by croslipSee all my reviews

In the conquest of America, saved more than this gem that reveals the misery, violence and sacrifice, but also the epic adventure .An excellent cast,highlight the Antonutti actors as a martial Aguirre ranging from sanity to madness caused by the feverish lust for gold and embellished by a tangled grandeur and endless forest, well intrigues existing between the characters as Eusebio Ponzela (Guzmán),Lambert Wilson (Ursúa) and José Sancho (La Bandera). Saura mark time creating an oppressive atmosphere that surrounds with men about looking for anything. Do not miss the occasion to see this movie.Thousands of adventures to exploit in particular by the American industry.It is possible to imagine a big budget Spielberg.
