Storyline

In the pursuit of self-discovery and authentic experiences, the Israeli backpacker, Yossi Ghinsberg, meets a cryptic Austrian geologist in La Paz, Bolivia, and captivated by his engrossing stories of lost tribes, uncharted adventures and even gold, decides to follow him, circa 1981. Without delay and accompanied by the good friends, Kevin, an American photographer, and Marcus, a Swiss teacher, they join an expedition led by their seasoned trail-leader, deep into the emerald and impenetrable Amazonian rainforest. However, as the endless and inhospitable jungle separates the inexperienced team, before long, Yossi will find himself stranded in the depths of a nightmarish environment crawling with formidable and tireless adversaries. How can one escape this green maze? Written by Nick Riganas

Goofs

When Yossi makes it to the river bank, after being tossed into the rapids, the river behind him is flowing to the left of the screen. After spending days lost in the jungle, he finally makes his way back to the river, but it's flowing to the right of the screen. Having never crossed it between those two sequences, that is impossible. See more »

Quotes

Karl: This is the last frontier on earth. Still alive, still wild. Not for long. We don't like wild. We don't like untamed. We're obsessed with control. So, we ruin the whole planet, and pride ourselves for creating stupid national parks with stupid rangers in stupid hats to protect what's already gone. Why? Cause we're scared. The jungle shows us what we really are. We're nothing. We're a joke. God fucked up.

Go to the jungle they said. It'll be fun they said.

Man -vs- Nature.

This film is a smorgasbord of epic cinematography, beautiful location shoots, great directing and outstanding performance by Daniel Radcliffe.

However, I felt this is one of those films that had it been played at 1.5x speed, I would have enjoyed it more. The 1h 55min run-time felt really unnecessarily long. 1hr 15-25min would have been perfect had the pace picked up in certain areas it dragged.

Nevertheless, very enjoyable 'True Story' and a 8/10 from me.
