Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 02/12/1982
"...QUEST FOR FIRE is more than just a hugely entertaining science lesson, although it certainly is that. It's also a touching, funny and suspenseful drama..."
Total Film - 10/01/2006
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..."
Sight and Sound - 10/01/2006
"The film is so well crafted and has such a relentless narrative drive that it quickly becomes absorbing."

Product Description:

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.

Plot Synopsis:

A prehistoric odyssey set at the dawn of mankind, when the first proto-humans let their fire go out and are forced to search for more across an untamed world. Well researched and realistic. Academy Award Nominations: Best Make-Up.
