Synopsis / Plot
Herzog always said that right from their first encounter, he knew he would end up taking advantage of Kinski's turbulent personality. He was chosen to play choleric Aguirre, a character in constant clash with his crew and the abrupt Amazonian landscape. Aguirre and Fitzcarraldo mark the beginning and the end of the golden era of fictional Herzog. Peru, 1570, Lope de Aguirre mutinies against his captain and leads a group of men on the search for El Dorado. Harassed by the Indians, sick, maddened, Aguirre keeps going, making the rest serve him as if he as an emperor, ranting about the kingdom he will found for the children he is having with his daughter.
