Based on the book Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
One of those legendary missed opportunities, Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes is a movie that should have been great but wound up the victim of conflicting egos and wrong-headed choices. Based on a screenplay by Robert Towne (who took his name off it when he wasn't allowed to direct) and directed by Hugh Hudson (riding high on the basis of Chariots of Fire), the film tried to rethink the Tarzan legend of Edgar Rice Burroughs, and boy, did it have to: By casting French-accented Christopher Lambert as Tarzan, the filmmakers had to transform his white-hunter mentor Ian Holm into a Frenchman to explain those inflections in Tarzan's monosyllabic speech. The film has some amazing jungle footage and a truly touching relationship between Tarzan and the apes--but it gets pretty silly when Tarzan gets to London and hooks up with Sir Ralph Richardson, as his grandfather.

Мальчик, выросший среди диких обезьян и живший по законам джунглей, возвращается к людям, отстаивая свое право быть человеком.

Danny Potts steals the show in the difficult and thankless task of the younger Tarzan, paving the way for Mr Langlois and Mr Lambert later in the film. Kudos to Danny, actually a British swimming champion at the time. The film itself is a worthy adaption.
