The Creator of the Jungle

Sobre la marxa

Directed by Jordi Morató
Spain, 2014


Near the Catalan village of Argelaguer, Garrell spent 45 years building spectacular jungle structures, tree houses, waterfalls and labyrinths with his bare hands. In the meantime, he made Tarzan films with local kids. An ode to the creative urge – and compulsion.

  • affasf's rating of the film The Creator of the Jungle

    A Peter Pan syndrome mixed with a Quixotesque fight against modernity snowballs a heartwarming feeling around involuntary gags disarming in the same time an otherwise umpteenth parable about extraordinary resistance on the verge of pathologic. A precious candor to preserve is synched with social criticism, an already-heard-mantra on brutalized city habitat that fosters beardy hipsters wearing Clarks.
