This 1990 drama's biggest attraction is its beautiful Brazilian setting, unfortunately, its one of its few strengths. Kari Vaananen plays a broke widowed businessman who takes his two teenage daughters with him to Brazil. A bush pilot, Robert Davi, introduces him to the idea of gold mining in the jungle, but a beautiful and educated local woman warns him about the possible consequences to the rainforest. This movie plods along at a tediously slow pace, it takes almost an hour for Rae Dawn Chong to appear and Robert Davi is criminally underused throughout. Vaananen comes across as very out of place and the whole film just has a clunky awkward presentation about it, it's also aged poorly. This could and should have been so much more.
