Groundbreaking drama from French director Jean-Jacques Annaud, set 80,000 years in the past, where a primitive tribe desperately guards their most valuable possession - fire. After an attack from a neighbouring tribe, the fire is put out. Lacking the knowledge to kindle their own flame, the tribe sets out on an epic journey across a prelapsarian wilderness to find another source of fire. The body language of the tribe was created by noted anthropologist Desmond Morris, while acclaimed writer Anthony Burgess assisted a team of linguists to create the primitive spoken language.
