I happened to be flipping through the channels when I stopped on TBS. It was a little boy, a little girl and a man playing in a natural pool of water. The movie looked like an old one that would not be promising. However, I was wrong. The Captain dies,, which I didn't see,, and then the little boy is rowing his boat to the other side of the island. It was very comical, because she was just sitting their looking like a lady while he was doing all the work. Through time, they began to annoy each other. In my opinion it was hilarious. At one point she imitates his fishing technique and they began to chase each other while squealing in delight. They began to develop an uncorrupted natural love which is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. They knew nothing of deceit, hate, and sin. Therefore, they became into something that so many wish for. Pure. Their love and lives were so pure that they created a baby. This movie really touched me and I believe it shows us how all people could be without all the terrible things in this world.
