Cave Of Forgotten Dreams [HD] (2010) Bluray 108...

There are some good examples of documentaries that have featured in the book 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die, I hoped this one directed by Werner Herzog (Nosferatu the Vampyre, Fitzcarraldo, Grizzly Man) would be another good one. Basically in 1994 in Southern France a cave perfectly preserved for over 20,000 years was discovered by scientists, it contains the earliest known human paintings and images yet discovered, this was named the Chauvet Cave, after scientist Jean- Marie Chauvet. With the cultural significance the French government immediately cut-off all access to it, only allowing a few scientists, archaeologists and paleontologists to document it. Director Werner Herzog has been granted a limited amount of time and access to the cave, he is one of only a few allowed to film inside, he examines the beautiful artwork created by our ancestors over 32,000 years ago, some of which despite being centuries old looks fresh. Herzog asks questions to various historians and scientists during his journey about what the humans who visited, but never lives, in the caves would have been like and trying to build a bridge from the past to the present. The title comes from the fact that these hand drawn images were forgotten obviously, and some of the imagery is like something out of dreams, the narration by Herzog throughout has strange philosophy and meaning, but you can ignore this somewhat, the most interesting thing about this film is of course the ancient discovery and the fascinating things to see inside the cave, so it's a worthwhile enough documentary film. Good!
