Join the Quest for Fire

Fire is important, and that point is demonstrated for us in Jean-Jacques Annaud's 1982 film the Quest for Fire. Cavemen on a quest to regain the precious element, facing enemy tribes and dangerous prehistoric creatures? Really? Oh, yeah. It has become a cult film and for good reasons...As Janet Masliin wrote in the New York Times on the movie's release: NOT many movies demand the suspension of disbelief that Jean-Jacques Annaud's ''Quest for Fire'' insists upon, and earns. The audience is asked to imagine that it is seeing what a movie camera would have seen, had the movie camera been invented 80,000 years ago. Some skepticism is in order, but it vanishes fast. ''Quest for Fire'' is more than just a hugely enterprising science lesson, although it certainly is that. It's also a touching, funny and suspenseful drama about prehumans.
