Synopsis

Special extended version of the period action adventure set in the late 19th century, directed by Hugh Hudson ('Chariots of Fire'). Christopher Lambert stars as Tarzan of Greystoke, who as an infant was orphaned on the west coast of Africa following a shipwreck, and was rescued and brought up by a family of highly-evolved apes. Twenty years later, a Belgian hunter, Captaine Phillippe D'Arnot (Ian Holm), encounters the man who has now become Tarzan, Lord of the Apes when the ape-man rescues him from a terrible death. When the Captaine finds evidence to prove that Tarzan is the direct descendant of the Earl of Greystoke, he takes it upon himself to return the man to civilization. But Edwardian England is very different to the wilds of the African jungle, and Tarzan finds himself torn between two irreconcilable worlds...
