2 mins United Kingdom Director. Nick Freand Jones

The film critic revisits Barbet Schroeder's cult jungle odyssey following a group of hippy explorers as they search for a mystical valley in New Guinea. Kermode looks back at the film's reception upon release, when its anthropological leanings were criticised by some observers, and also touches upon the film's famous soundtrack by Pink Floyd.
