Views: 759535 Description: lovers in paradise in a natural habitat for sexual awakening
- BASED ON A BOOK BY DOUGLAS DAY STEWART -
the movie studies the EFFECTS of a natural habitat and its evolutionary progression on two shipwrecked children as a couple who survive and thrive extremely well together on a tropical island in isolation ,it is a behavioural observation of the theory that a man and woman need nothing more to be happy if they are in harmony .
their playful reef adventures lead to teenage squabbles and finally the first taste of love itself which is exquisitelt revisited on screen .
they live together in isolation as a modern day adam and eve and discover love without being taught it in a very spontaneous and natural manner .
the affects af both being uneducated and not tempted by the media of the modern world is a very interesting concept and yet very provoking too .
the movie is a celebration of nature from the sea life ,reef adventures ,pike fihing and diving waterfalls on the island and the actors perform very naturally without any conciousness as if they are in the real environment rather then in front of a camera and film unit .
the theme of survival with nature being omnipotent and man being innovative through nature itself is well executed .
the dialogues are simple and uninhibited as indeed two young cousins without a tutor will have little linguistic abilities to talk like in moby dick or the prosaic poetry of stevenson but the island of oahu in hawaii and the beach scenes including the underwater footage is too good to be true and is a must -see.
both the actors deliver though the movie was ragged by critics but it is supposed to be an innocent discovery of natural human progression through chilhood into adolescence and it achieves that rather very deftly in the hands of the director randal kaiser .
the small part played by leo mc kern and the few trivia of modern society in the forest beach habitat are reminders of the metaphorical human baggage and how little you need to be happy and content .
it is rather a surprisingly simple and lusciously visual delight from the factory of hollywood with excellent technical production values....
