Synopsis

Set 80,000 years agothis accomplished “cinematic spectacle”(New York Magazine) follows the lives of four tribes of early man — each with their own customs and stages of development. As they all face perilous terrain, human rivals and savage predators, one peaceful tribe searches for the element that will bring comfort and safety to all of mankind: fire. While celebrating human drama, this stunning film, shot on location in Scotland, Iceland, Canada and Kenya, also offers fascinating insights into prehistoric man’s survival.

Reviews

Variety Staff Variety | March 26, 2009

An engaging prehistoric yarn that happily never degenerates into a club and lion skin spinoff of Star Wars and resolutely refuses to bludgeon the viewer with facile or gratuitous effects.

Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times | October 23, 2004

These characters and their quest began to grow on me, and by the time the movie was over I cared very much about how their lives would turn out.

Janet Maslin New York Times | August 30, 2004

''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.
