"The sea was full of dead snakes. They had crawled down during the night by the thousands from the mountain Soufriere and fled into the sea where they promptly drowned."

Werner Herzog takes his documentary lens where most fear to tread, the island of Guadeloupe where a seemingly inevitable volcanic eruption has turned a once bustling city into a ghost town. Herzog shows little fear (and common sense) as he scopes out the island and it's very few remaining inhabitants. Intriguing real-life drama that, through no fault of the film makers, is happily anticlimactic.

A volcano is about to blow. What do you do? If you're German, mad, and called Werner Herzog, you sneak around the army roadblocks and climb the volcano to film a documentary. He explores an abandoned town and speaks to some people who refuse to leave, and then...well, you'll just have to see it for yourself.
