Sample text

With each new character that misunderstands Chance’s identity, the viewer gets more and more self-satisfied about knowing the truth. But with the final scene, the director makes the viewer a fool: unlike the characters, the viewer missed the clues that Chance is really Jesus-in-disguise. Time to take another look. True, like Jesus, Chance’s origins are unclear. No one in the Old Man’s house knows where he comes from or why he is there. Like Jesus who pre-exists creation (John 1:1) and says, ‘Before Abraham was, I am’ (John 8:57), Chance says, ‘You have me.

Mark’s script ends as abruptly as Aguirre. 12 Aguirre Like Aguirre, Jesus is a traitor. To the high priests and other officials who rely on the Romans for patronage and who control the Jerusalem temple, Jesus’ ‘cleansing’ (11:15–17) is the act of a terrorist aimed at destroying the economic lifeblood of the city. That is what seals his fate, as the powers that be are now determined to eliminate him (11:18). And just as Aguirre at the end is swallowed up by the jungle and the chaotic creation it represents, the empty tomb signals that Jesus, too, is absorbed into the chaotic world.

Shots of rapids held for an extended time, water vapours and droplets on the lens, a butterfly sitting on a finger, characters relaxing in silence, long passages of an Indian’s reedy music, and so on, all contribute to the feel of a ‘making-of’ documentary. Soldiers make their descent in heavy armor, but the audience see actors labouring through unforgiving terrains in their cumbersome costumes. We are witnessing not a dramatic enactment of a long-forgotten expedition but the real struggle of a megalomaniac (Herzog himself) making a film with actors struggling in real, hostile terrains.
