Cave of Forgotten Dreams Synopsis

Iconic director Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man, Rescue Dawn) once again takes us on an incredible adventure, going behind the frontier of an extraordinary place. Overcoming considerable challenges, Herzog captures the stunning majesty of the Chauvet Cave in southern France, where the world's oldest cave paintings have been discovered. Herzog reveals a breath-taking subterranean world including the 32,000-year-old artworks in his own inimitable style. With humorous and engaging narration Herzog reflects on our primal desire to communicate and represent the world around us, evolution and our place within it, and ultimately what it means to be human.

Herzog is a quizzical guide who takes us right into the experience of entering and exploring the cave. He takes us to the stunning cave art itself. Herzog's own way to conduct the interviews from experts is unexpected and wonderful. The camera and 3D filming gives an absolutely uncanny sense of being present in the cave, especially in the final sequence. The documentary is a masterclass in cinematography: you can fully enjoy to truly experience and absorb the paintings. The tone and pace of the film might seem slow and cold, though it fits well to the context. Some might regret that the focus on Art fails to give enough historical and ethnical context, but CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS is a dark and deep beauty.
