Storyline

The Ötztal Alps, more than 5300 years ago. A Neolithic clan has settled near a creek. It is their leader Kelab's responsibility to be the keeper of the group's holy shrine Tineka. While Kelab is hunting, the settlement is attacked. The members of the tribe are brutally murdered, among them Kelab's wife and son, only one newborn survives - and Tineka is gone. Blinded by pain and fury, Kelab is out for one thing alone - vengeance. The pursuit of the murderers is shaping up to be quite an odyssey for Kelab. He fights for the infant's survival and against the forces of nature. And a fatal error even turns Kelab from hunter to hunted. On top of all that, the loneliness causes Kelab to doubt his actions more and more. When Kelab finally faces the murderers of his clan, his greatest challenge will be not to become a murderer himself. - Ötzi - The Iceman is one of the oldest and most well-known mummies in the world. With emotional impact, writer/director Felix Randau depicts the first ... Written by www.port-prince.de

This is how we lived.
18 March 2019 | by beep-73926See all my reviews

This film depicts the way most humans lived for about 90% of our existence. Before agriculture, towns, "civilization". Remember, "modern" humans have only been around for, at most, 200,000 years. If you think you've got it tough, think of the constant struggle and danger of life for most of our tenure on Earth. You were lucky to live to be 40.

The film has no dialogue and none is needed. It is an imagining of the final days of "Otzi", the so-called Iceman found in the Austrian/Italian Alps in 1991. He lived 5,300 years ago. The movie is beautifully shot and edited and I enjoyed it immensely. It gives you pause to consider how difficult life was for our remote ancestors and how it seems rather unlikely that we would be here at all considering all our inherent weaknesses compared to so many other species.

Others complain about the lack of dialogue or narration but those components are not needed and would have just complicated a simple story that probably occurred thousands of times in our past since our history is rife with conflict and struggle.

Highly recommended to anyone interested in human history.
