Category: Edition 2013

Synopsis
Entrepreneur John Greystoke travels with his wife and their little son to Africa in search of a valuable mineral. In a mysterious cave he thinks he has found it. As a violent storm erupts, he and his family rush back to the helicopter to leave the jungle, but don’t make it far. A band of gorillas finds the wreckage and only one survivor, the child, who grows into a strong and independent young man known as Tarzan. Some years pass before Tarzan encounters another human, the beautiful and intrepid Jane Porter. More years pass and Jane returns to Africa with William Clayton, a shrewd businessman who wants to find the cave detected by Greystoke. Jane discovers the truth and becomes a target. Tarzan must use his jungle instincts and human intellect to save his home and the woman he loves.

 

Sinossi
L’imprenditore John Greystoke si reca in Africa con la moglie e il figlioletto alla ricerca di un prezioso minerale, e crede di averlo trovato in una misteriosa grotta. Scoppia un temporale, e i tre tornano all’elicottero per lasciare la giungla, ma invano. Un branco di gorilla trova il relitto e un solo sopravvissuto, il figlio di Greystoke, che cresce nella giungla e diventa un giovane indipendente e forte, da tutti chiamato Tarzan. Passano anni prima che Tarzan incontri un altro essere umano, la bella e audace Jane Porter. Passano altri anni: Jane torna in Africa con William Clayton, uno scaltro uomo d’affari che vuole trovare la grotta scoperta da Greystoke. Jane scopre la verità, e diventa un bersaglio. Tarzan dovrà usare il suo istinto animalesco e il suo intelletto umano per salvare la sua terra e la donna che ama.
