The film follows Slovenian endurance swimmer Martin Strel as he attempts the longest and most dangerous swim in history -- to swim the Amazon river. Accompanied by raconteur director John Maringouin, his worried son Borut and thoreauvian river guide Matthew Mohlke, Strel battles crocodiles, deadly parasites, piranhas and finally himself in the 3300 mile swim.Written by
Big River Man is fantastic movie documenting something that many actors have not done it even in the movie. Martin Strel is one of the greatest heroes of modern age but unfortunately, he will be forgotten very quickly. Quality of the movie is extremely good and the movie is not boring for one single second. This movie is not for people who think about Amazon as a holiday destination but as the only unspoilt and undamaged area on this planet.
To people who do not like, I would suggest them to stick with Hollywood and Tom Cruise style movies. If you do not like the movie then do not watch documentary movies.
I'm sure that many people would like to see more Martin Strel movies.
