An engaging prehistoric yarn that happily never degenerates into a club and lion skin spinoff of Star Wars and resolutely refuses to bludgeon the viewer with facile or gratuitous effects.

Quest for Fire boldly states its claims to dance along the abyss of the ridiculous.

These characters and their quest began to grow on me, and by the time the movie was over I cared very much about how their lives would turn out.

''Quest for Fire'' is more than just a hugely enterprising science lesson, although it certainly is that. It's also a touching, funny and suspenseful drama about prehumans.

Quest for Fire takes us back 80,000 years to probe early human aggression, territoriality, dominance and education.

Despite the film's occasional goofy turns, by the end, chances are, you'll be rooting for the Ulam to work out that nifty little stick-rubbing trick for themselves.

Not to everyone's taste, certainly, but those of an anthropological bent will appreciate Quest For Fire's admirably detailed portrayal of early man's struggles for survival.
