Very good film from Dutch director Marleen Gorris, known for her Academy Award winning film "Antonia" (best foreign film, 1995) A few people are stranded on an isolated island somewhere in the Pacific after their plane crashed. Somehow (you know when you see it) they all find out that they are the last people on earth. The people are a mix of cultural differences: a gay, a military religious fanatic, a French man, a quite sexually disturbed young man, an old woman, a dog, See it...and ONE woman. Only leaves one question: Who spends the semen, to make human kind last for another x years? In the film this question is the main theme, and, when one thinks of it, a very hard ordeal. Not only for the men, who are kindly willing to spend it, but especially for the woman. All in all, a film from a females viewpoint but with a lot of things for men AND women to think about. A MUST to see, in my humble opinion. You will be astound with what will happen to this few people. See it....It's worth while...
