Shot in southern Sahara. While off-screen voices tell us ancient myths about Creation and Paradise, we watch images of desolation. We hear a tale about Life and we see skeleton of animals and iron frameworks. Herzog calls FATA MORGANA a sci-fi movie since he explains its plot (!) as the description of a death planet by aliens. It's not at all evident for the viewer. Incantatory, hypnotic, highly recommended. Though.
