Plot: A colossal adventure odyssey that turns back the hands of time to the very beginning of man’s existence. 80,000 years ago, when man roamed the earth, he was exposed to the many harsh elements of nature. Against the perilous atmosphere of rugged terrain, rival tribes and savage beasts, Quest for Fire examines a peaceful tribe’s search for that all important element fire, and the knowledge to create it. Focusing on human dream as well as realistic insights into pre-historic man, the constant struggle for survival is vividly recreated in this sensational production.

Very underrated.. one of my top 20 Favorites.
Many of my friends laugh at me when I mention this movie. I don’t know what makes so many of them hate it so.. Perhaps the lack of understandable dialogue? Too much like thinking to understand what is going on? Whatever it is, I am one of the few I know who feel this is a very underrated movie.. I know it is not accurate from a scientific perspective… The time line is all messed up.. but so what? I sat there in the theater just thinking.. “suppose live in our distant past WAS something like this movie. Fire=Life=Fire. Along comes a superior tribe and I realize that I could summon the flames at MY WILL. How powerful I would feel.. Almost G-d like! The photography is lush and there is a tinge of humor when the backward tribe learns to laugh. I enjoyed the story and the acting… everything. Rent it! See it twice if you must. Just maybe… we ARE looking back at ourselves.
A one of a kind
I caught this in Boston back in 1981. They played it in the biggest cinema they had in 70mm and in stereo sound. I had only the slightest idea of what it was about but it sounded interesting. When I realized it was a caveman movie I almost left, but the beautiful wide screen cinematography kept me in my seat. Slowly it worked on me and by the end I was mesmerized.
There’s not really much of a plot–the caveman discover fire and different sexual positions–and there’s no dialogue that we could understand but it didn’t matter. The whole cast was excellent–especially Ron Perelman and Rae Dawn Chong (who had guts to do this). Their whole performances had to be done using some foreign language and body movement but they pulled it off. I heard Anthony Burgess was called in to develop the language used and coach the cast in how to use it. The cinematography is just breath-taking and the prehistoric animals look realistic all the way. I can’t exactly say why I loved this movie but I did.
20th Century Fox deserves credit for actually acquiring the film and releasing it. Naturally it bombed badly here in the US but it seems I’m not the only one who likes it–when I mention it to friends I just get a blank look back. I haven’t seen it since 1981 but it’s never left me. Try to see it on a big screen TV. I give it an 8.
