SOUNDTRACK
 

Quest for Fire, which was released in 1982, is the story of pre-historic tribes in Paleolithic Europe who are all on the quest to get fire, either by learning to create it or steal it from others.  The movie received mostly positive reviews, and won a few Cesar Awards as well as an Academy Award for Makeup.  The film was a commercial success at the box office.

In this movie, the tribes are the Ulam, Ivaka, Kzamm, and Wagabu.  The tribes represent the Homo species thought to exist at the time:  Home erectus, Homo neanderthalensis, and Homo sapiens, each in various stages of development.  The movie begins with the Wagabu tribe raiding the Ulman tribe to steal their fire.  The Ulman tribe do not know how to make fire, but instead obtained it through natural means (volcano?), and learned to keep it alive.  In the process of escaping the Wagabu, the Ulman fire tender drops the flame and it goes out.  Figuring that without fire they will die, the Ulman elder sends out three Ulman men on a new quest to find fire.

The Ulman tribesmen encounter adventures along the way, but eventually they are able to steal some fire from the Kzamm tribe.  In the process of escaping the Kzamm, they end up with a female Kzamm prisoner from the Ivaka tribe, named Ika, who tags along with the Ulman.  At one point, one of the Ulman tribesmen, Noah, goes with Ika her tribe.  The Ivaka are much more advanced than the Ulman (they know how to create fire), and Noah is taught their ways.  In the end, Noah and Ika return to the Ulman tribe with their new knowledge and skills, and the Ulman’s embrace the new advancements in technology.
