Werner Herzog’s 3 D documentary **The Cave of Forgotten Dreams.” Best known for his intense films like **Fitzcarldo** **Aguirre: The Wrath of God** and **Grizzly Man,** Herzog obtained exclusive access to film inside the Chauvet caves of Southern France, which is believed to be the oldest pictographs on earth.
**The Caves of Forgotten Dreams** is a beautiful and approachable film. Herzog, who also narrates, brings a childlike joy through his grandfatherly German accent. The visuals are exceptional and the stories told about the artifacts is life affirming. For those who prefer a leisurely baseball game over an intense hockey game, then **The Game of Forbidden Dreams** is the flick for you.
