Set 80,000 years ago, this 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.
Editor's Note
During the Ice Age, the fire used by a clan of cavemen is extinguished during a battle. Subsequently, three members leave in search of new embers to renew their flame. This journey proves to be more event-filled than expected, however; for example, they rescue a young cavewoman from cannibalistic savages and she leads them to her tribe, where the trio learns the secrets of fire -- and love.

Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t delves into the filth of our forefather's existence, revealing the cruelty of their struggle to survive. There's also a heart-rending love story, humour, and the titular action-packed quest..." 10/01/2006 p.115

Sight and Sound
