Movie Info

When his father is murdered by a corrupt political regime, Abel (Anthony Perkins) flees Caracas and for the Venezuelan forests, searching for hidden gold to fund his revenge. In the jungle, he finds Rima (Audrey Hepburn), a "bird girl" who has reverted to a natural and innocent state. Rima was raised by an evil grandfather who still tries to exercise dominion over her. It is up to Abel to try and save the girl from her grandfather, and also to protect her from superstitious natives.

  • The ethereal Audrey Hepburn was a good choice to portray a mysterious "bird girl"...but Mel Ferrer's ponderous direction and a gauzypoetic ending defeat the worthy project.

  • One of Audrey Hepburn's few bad films, a pretentiously mythic and romantic tale, misdirected by her husband Mel Ferrer, and further suffering from lack of chemistry with Anthony Perkins.

    God, this movie was really disappointing. Even though my expectations were really low and I was only watching Green Mansions as an excuse to drool over Audrey Hepburn for a couple hours it still somehow managed to skimp in the Saving Graces department. The story was mediocre, the acting was generally overinflated and if the movie wasn't being completely non-engaging, it was completely depressing. Tiny coffin depressing. Hepburn turned in a decent performance considering what she had to work with and the fact that her then-husband Mel Ferrer was in the director's chair, but despite all the reasons I can give for someone not to see this movie, she kind of trumps just about all of them.

    Beautiful! That's how I'd describe this movie. Perkins and Hepburn are fantastic in this movie, and the rest of the cast is great too. The story has adventure and romance combined wonderfully. Some scenes in the beginning are a bit slow and slightly boring, but it doesn't matter in the end. The ending is perfect. I really enjoyed this movie, and I highly recommend this movie.

    Beautiful scenery at times mixed with obvious soundstage shots but labored story. The bird like Audrey who should be ideal casting as Bird Girl Rima is miscast and seems like nothing more than a misplaced debutante late for a cotillion.
