On a journey to San Francisco, Richard, his father and cousin Emmeline find themselves on a ship about to explode. Rushed to a lifeboat with Paddy Button, the two children escape while their father (and uncle) are on another lifeboat. In the chaos following, the lifeboats are separated. Paddy, Richard and Emmeline find themselves with no food and no water stuck in the middle of nowhere. After some time, the three come across an uncharted paradise, where Paddy quickly teaches the children fishing, hunting and building. After maybe a month or two, Paddy gets very drunk off a barrel of rum found on the island when they first arrive, and drowns in the middle of the night.

Two children are shipwrecked alone on a lost tropical island. Nature is kind to them. They thrive on the bounty of the jungle and the lagoon. The boy grows tall. The girl beautiful. They swim naked over coral reefs. They run in a cathedral of trees. And the warm winds, the tropic moon, the silk sand conspire to enchant them. When their love happens, it is natural as the sea, and as powerful. Love as nature intended to be. See more »
When Emmeline is teaching the baby how to swim, she calls Richard down to watch. When Em is holding the baby, you can hear a child laughing that doesn't match any of the actors. Later, you hear the toddler Paddy laugh and it sounds identical to the laugh heard before. See more »
This movie is simple, it captures what life is really about. Without the many special effects that is used in movies now and even in the past it is a absolutely wonderful movie.
A young romance blossoming between two kids who have known nobody else but themselves. They discover everything in life without all the interference of the rest of the world.
The low rating on this movie is unjust, it deserves a lot more then it is given, this is possibly one of the best movies I have ever seen.
It is absolutely wonderful for a romantic night just you and the television. And the nudity? it was exciting when I was younger, it becomes a bit too much as I am getting older, but it does not bother me. It fits the movie, the pure soul of the movie.
