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.

I left Israel in 1980 after three years in the army. I was desperate to escape the well-worn path. High school, university, work, marriage, kids. Not me. I wanted to be different. To experience the extraordinary. And to enter the unknown, discover lost tribes, hidden treasures, the darkest heart of the jungle. Which is why, of course, I ended up in Bolivia, South America.

Im gonna start off with Daniel Radcliffe. He was simply BRILLIANT in this movie. Trully astonishing and thrilling true story was beautifully brought to screen. I loved the cinematography, landscape shots and camera work overall. I can't understand why this movie has rating of 6.7, while movies like justice league, with no story, or with the story that we've seen multiple times already, have ratings 8+.
I would recommend this movie to everyone. Its inspiring, shows us how small we really are before the mighty jungle.
