You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. He felt the jungle location would "bring out special qualities in the actors and even the crew. I don't know what else can happen now.
Even if I get that boat over the mountain, nobody on this earth will convince me to be happy about that, not until the end of my days.
On a commentary track, we learn more horrifying details; a crew member, bitten by a deadly snake, saved his own life by instantly cutting off his foot with the chain saw he was holding.
In an outtake from "Burden," which Herzog used in " My Best Fiend " , his documentary about his stormy relationship with Kinski, we see the actor raging crazily on the set.
The movie is imperfect, but transcendent; this story could not have been filmed on this location in this way and been perfect without being less of a film.
The conclusion, the scene with the cigar, for example, is an anticlimax; but then everything must be an anticlimax after the boat goes up the hill.
What is crucial is that Herzog does not hurry his story along; he seeks not the progress of the plot, but the resonance of the images.
Consider a sequence where the boat actually bangs and crashes its way through the deadly Pongo das Mortes, the Rapids of Death.
Another director might have made this a routine action scene, with quick cuts and lots of noise; Herzog makes it a slow and frightful procession down real currents in a real ship, with a phonograph playing Caruso until he needle is knocked loose.
It looks more horrifying to see the huge ship slowly floating to its destiny. Among directors of the last four decades, has anyone created a more impassioned and adventurous career than Werner Herzog?
Most people have only seen a few of his films, or none; he cannot be fully appreciated without a familiarity with his many documentaries and more obscure features such as " Heart of Glass " and " Stroszek ".
His documentary " Grizzly Man ," about a man who spent 13 summers with the grizzly bears of Alaska, is the spiritual brother of "Fitzcarraldo" -- both times, men are driven by obsession to challenge the wilderness.
Again and again, in films shot in Africa, Australia, Southeast Asia and South America, he has been drawn to the farthest reaches of the earth and to the people who live there with their images uncorrupted by the thin gruel of mass media.
They had heard he was finding it impossible to get the ship up the mountain, and asked if it would not be wiser to take his losses and quit.
His reply: "How can you ask this question? November Retrieved 9 October The Pachitea is a tributary of the Ucayali, not a third river, and their confluence is nearly kilometers south of Iquitos.
The true map looks nothing like the one Fitzcarraldo draws. Burden of Dreams. Archived from the original on Besides, they, uh, disassembled it in about 14 or 15 parts The central metaphor of my film is that they haul a ship over what's essentially an impossibly steep hill.
But the system is designed for a degree slope. Herzog insists on 40 degrees. I must say the story of this caucho baron did not interest me so much.
What interested me more was one single detail. That was, uh, that he crossed an isthmus, from one river system into another, uh, with a boat.
They disassembled the boat and — and put it together again on the other river. Herzog on Herzog. Faber and Faber.

Like Aguirre, there's a God complex working in Fitzcarraldo, only this time it's not in the total shroud of madness.
There's room for irony, spouts of wild humor sometimes from Kinski, like when he tries to play an opera record for disinterested party-goers early on in the film , and an overwhelming fascination with what's all around Fitzcarraldo, the jungle, nature, the natives that dwell there and always stick to their indeterminable ways.
Watching how Herzog maneuvers through his bulky story is ceaselessly compelling, even in the moments where he just lets the camera take everything in: the waves crashing all around, the boat set against the jungle-scape with the opera singer Caruso in the background, the many faces and poses of the natives and their moments of pure calm versus their unpredictable nature why do they put on face paint like they're about to go to war, and then nothing happens, don't ask me.
Poetry gets set into motion with seemingly the greatest of ease, like a scene where a few natives on a small canoe look on, and Fitzcarraldo thinks about stopping, but they just go on as it's not even worth it, or when he and his first-mate and couple other regulars on the ship try to eat, only surrounded by the natives.
Or the shocking moments when after victory seems to be achieved, all is in peril as the boat flaps about on the river and the recording still goes on and on, haunting as anything the jungle can compare to.
Indeed, the jungle itself becomes another key part of Herzog's metaphor, even more so than in Aguirre, and it's perfectly exploited or rendered, depending on point of view for Herzog's own feelings about the jungle.
It's an environment dangerous, alluring, and with the capacity to fear its awesome mass as well as beauty or, as Herzog said in 'Burden', it's lovable against better judgment , so it's not all taken in at a distance- there isn't so much a real sense of escapism via the hand-held shots unlike in the epics of the directors previously mentioned.
Fitcarraldo's own quest then is against nature's own ways- nature is objective and always the same- as the simple notion of moving the boat, and then doing it, goes against nature's true nature, if that makes sense.
Thus it makes perfect sense as well to have Kinski along for the ride, even if it's not his greatest achievement with his most frequent director.
It's all in the eyes, practically every step of the way, that one believes this man even through all of the follies and naive flights of fancy, and it's the closest Kinski probably ever came to playing the romantic lead of an adventure picture.
Some of the usual scenes of 'damn he's nuts' come up, like his ringing of the town bell. It's another in the line of outcasts he played in Herzog's films, tormented and always in craving for something more, though this time not in a bleak manner.
There is the problem that Kinski's presence would be undermined by the many "adequate" images Herzog loves to achieve. Luckily, he stands his ground, and even contributes to the poetry in times of just listening to the Caruso, and gazing on at his dream coming true on the mountainside.
Fitzcarraldo isn't perfect by any means, as it ends up by way of the nature of Herzog's storytelling to almost tell of too much in his scenes.
And the English language track I heard sometimes dilutes a few of the performances by feeling too dubbed and a little ridiculous in some instances.
But these are just tiny mentions that get overlooked when looking at the success of what is done. Only a director as intelligently deranged and confident as Herzog could have dreamed up this film based on a true character and make it as real and alive as the greatest of epic adventures.
