Storyline

At the beginning of WW2, Liviu, a Romanian count, and his wife Julia come to live on an uninhabited tropical island, where they hope to escape the war and their past. They bring with them all conceivable provisions and their servants, and live in luxury in a mansion-like tent on the beach. After a short time, a group of uninvited friends arrive. They decimate the supplies and, in the course of a frenzied shooting party, kill every living animal on the island before leaving, bringing most of the servants with them. The only people left on the island are Liviu and his wife, their friend Larson, and one servant, Eusebio. The expected supplies do not arrive, the party has no way of communicating with the outside world, and passion is rife between the one woman and three men on the island. As supplies run short, mistrust, greed and jealousy threaten their idyllic life style. Written by cocoken

Well...

I really don't know what to think, say and write about this strange film. I have not seen anything from Arturo Ripstein before, and I will probably never see anything from him later. This one is somewhere fascinating, surprising and not foreseeable at any point of view. I did not know what it was about. No plot line on IMDb.

We find here Charlotte Rampling, Max Von Sydow and Peter O'Toole, all used to international casts and productions. Some people find themselves on a paradise island, in the thirties, some time before the war they all could feel very close. And, of course, we assist at a tragedy, because of Charlotte Rampling between Sydow, Peter O'Toole and also Claudio Brooke. A drama, as we although could expect. The filming is rather classic, and actors directing too. But the story remains very offbeat.

I am surprised that no user has commented it yet. So it's done. I have filled my duty.
