Synopsis

The legend of El Dorado, a land rich in gold, tempts Gonzalo Pizarro to lead an expedition beyond the Andes in 1560. Forced to halt, two men are sent downriver with a patrol. When their rafts are damaged, one decides to return to the camp, while Aguirre leads a mutiny and takes charge of the patrol.

MUBI's take

The most famous of Werner Herzog’s extreme visions, his “ecstatic fiction” Aguirre is a haunting masterwork on human ambition, forged in harsh conditions and forever engraving the madness of star Klaus Kinski into the pantheon.
