Klaus Kinski stars as Brian Fitzgerald, an Irish expatriate living in Peru who dreams of building an opera house in his village. Seeking to profit from the rubber industry, Fitzgerald arranges to move a giant steamship over a mountain to access a remote area of the Amazon rather than risk the boat’s destruction in the rapids, (a stunning feat carried about by Herzog’s crew during production of the film).
