Joris ed Helene vanno in crociera per festeggiare il loro decimo anniversario di matrimonio. Durante il viaggio c'è un attentato a bordo: un'esplosione fa naufragare la nave ed i superstiti si ritrovano su un sperduta isola tropicale. Fra di loro c'è anche Joris, rimasto cieco durante l'esplosione, che viene a sapere della morte della moglie durante il naufragio. Nei giorni di permanenza sull'isola, i naufraghi si nutrono di carne di albatross, catturati da alcuni di loro. O, almeno, questo è quello che dicono. Joris non può verificare, ma che strano gusto ha quella carne! Dopo alcuni interminabili giorni, il capitano della nave, Kurt Vogel, riesce a mettersi in contatto con un nave cisterna e tutti fanno ritorno a casa. Anche Joris ritorna, ma ha molti dubbi. Una sera va a cenare in un lussuoso ristorante, in compagnia di amici, ed ordina carne di albatross: la mangia e capisce che quella che aveva mangiato sull'isola non era la carne del grosso uccello marino. Tornato a casa, ... Written by rosebud6

Plot translation per Babel Fish
1 May 2008 | by (Salem, Oregon) – See all my reviews

*MAJOR SPOILERS* Babel fish translation of the plot: "Joris and Helene go in cruise in order to celebrate their tenth anniversary of wedding. During the travel there is an attack to edge: an outbreak makes to be shipwrecked the ship and the survivors find again themselves on a dispersed tropical island. Between of they is also Joris, remained blind during the outbreak, that it comes to know of the dead women of the moglie during the shipwreck. In the days of permanence on the island, it is shipwrecked nutrono of meat of albatross, captured from some of they. Or, at least, this is what they say. Joris cannot verify, but that strange taste has that meat! After some interminable days, the captain of the ship, Kurt Vogel, succeeds to put in contact with a tanker and all make return house. Also Joris returns, but it has many doubts. An evening goes to have supper in a lussuoso restaurant, company of friends, and orders meat of albatross: it eats and it understands that that one that it had eaten on the island was not the meat of the large marine bird. Returned to house, it appeals its gun and it is killed."

To translate that gobbeldy gook further: Sounds like the infamous brainteaser/story of a blind man who goes to a restaurant, orders albatross, takes one bite and kills himself. Why? The plot of the movie seems to be about a man who is shipwrecked on an island with some other people (along with some dead bodies). While there, he is fed what is called "albatross". He returns home eventually, orders albatross on the menu, and it tastes nothing like what he had on the island... and kills himself. I assume that the the "albatross" on the island was really "human" in nature. *END MAJOR SPOILERS*
