I have been familiar with and fascinated by Yossi Ghinsberg’s dramatic survival story for many years and have even occasionally given classes about it at school. When I heard that there was a movie about this intriguing journey, it wasn’t even a question whether I would purchase the film or not. The blandly titled Jungle fulfils my expectations on many levels. If you haven’t heard about Ghinsberg’s true story yet, here is a very brief summary. The young Israelian adventurer traveled to South America after his mandatory military service and met an American photographer, Austrian geologist and Swiss teacher. The geologist convinced the three aquaintances to travel into the heart of the Bolivian jungle to discover unknown tribes and gold.
