Storyline

At an institute in Manila, researchers and eco-tourists trade stories about the Mara tribe, who live on a remote island and have an annual festival of rebirth in which some of the tribe forget who they are and begin again. Laure is the daughter of the institute's director; she's a free spirit who has captured the fancy of Nicola, a European photographer. After a courtship in which the voyeuristic Nick indulges Laure's exhibitionism and sexual freedom, they set off for Mara land with Gualtier, an anthropologist, and his philosophical lover, Myrte. As they approach the Mara on the night of rebirth, who of the group will actually join the tribe to begin life anew? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Linda Lovelace was originally hired to play the leading role. According to her autobiography, 'Ordeal', after the script was rewritten to be more sexually explicit, she refused and was given a supporting role, but later left the project altogether. See more »

Quotes

Myrte: It's all so beautiful... and yet so strange. I feel a sense of - I don't know - some indefinable menace... A vague sense of fear... like a fear of death... A contraction deep inside my soul that makes me shiver.
Nicola: It's the night air that makes you shiver.
Professor Gualtier Morgan: It's *not* the night air... I too feel what Myrte feels... It's not the night air.

Strangely compelling
30 March 2001 | by (San Francisco, California) – See all my reviews

I've been strangely attracted to this film since I saw it on Showtime sometime in the early 80's. I say strangely because it is rather a ludicrous bit of soft-core fluff, a genre I'm not particularly interested in. The dialogue is pompously and nonsensically philosophical (making sense, no doubt, only to it's Franco-Italian producers)and the plot completely extraneous. What it does achieve is a wonderfully hypnotic and thoroughly pleasant mood. The scenery (the beautiful Philippines), soft-focus nudity and wonderful score all contribute to a strange and extremely watchable exercise in a sort of film making seldom seen today. It is truly one of my great "guilty pleasures". I was fortunate enough to find it on an old laserdisc and have watched it more times than I think is healthy. A worthwhile moodpiece.
