Synopsis:
In their final collaboration, Werner Herzog directs Klaus Kinski in the remarkable tale of Francisco Manoel da Silva, the flamboyant 19 century of Brazilian bandit known as Cobra Verde. When owner of a sugar plantation unknowingly hires the barefoot, gun-toting thief to keep his slaves in check, he gets more than he bargained for as Cobra Verde, in short order, impregnates all of his boss's daughters. In revenge, he is sent on an impossible and deadly mission to sail to the West Coast of Africa and re-open the slave trade.
Not only does Cobra Verde succeed at this he goes on to lead an unstoppable army of women in a savage war against the local king! Filmed on location with a cast of hundreds, 'Cobra Verde' is a tale of adventure, greed and betrayal. It's the story of two worlds in collision, and of the man who was trapped between them.
