The opening of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: a Space Odyssey aside, the accepted wisdom is that cavemen movies don't work. Even if you dress them up with anthropological significance and call upon experts like Desmond Morris and Anthony Burgess to design the diverse gestures and grunts, the action will still be limited by the spartan simplicity of the prehistoric lifestyle. To his credit, Jean-Jacques Annaud succeeds in locating the characters within their hostile environment (variously Canada, Scotland, Iceland and Kenya) and explores the primitive intelligence of the questing Ulams without patronising them or the less civilised Ivakas. But it's still a trying experience.
