Storyline

Axel Heyst lives on a secluded island near the Dutch East Indies port of Surabaya. The year is 1913. While on personal business to the port, he visits the hotel owned by racist German Schomberg. An all-woman orchestra plays in the hotel each night, and orchestra owner, San Giacomo agrees to "sell" one of the girls, Alma, to Schomberg. She asks Heyst to save her from the villains and they escape to his island and live there with native servant Wang. Schomberg points sinister Mr. Jones and his two fellow bandits to that island, saying that the fortune lies ahead of them there. Written by Anonymous

A really perfect movie
3 October 2003 | by (Northern California) – See all my reviews

I gave this movie a solid 10 here at IMDB, but not because the film is some epic or anything, but just because when I was done, I sat back and said, "Wow."

The story is by the novelist Joseph Conrad. I haven't read it, so I can't judge the movie on its interpretation of the story. But the story as I saw was very much in Conrad's spirit of adventure, drama, moral dilemma and a touch of mystery.

It is easy to expect intense performances from Dafoe, but it was especially pleasing to see Sam Neil's excellent performance as the evil and deluded Mr. Jones.
