Description
Summary:A fascinating documentary portrait of a 1930's murder mystery as strange and alluring as the famous archipelago itself. Fleeing conventional society, a German doctor and his mistress start a new life on uninhabited Floreana Island. But after the international press sensationalizes the exploits of the Galapagos' "Adam and Eve", others flock there, including a self-styled Swiss Family Robinson and a gun-toting Viennese Baroness and her two lovers. Clashing personalities are aggravated by the island community's lusty free-love ethos, and when some of the islanders disappear, suspicions of murder hang in the air leaving an unsolved mystery which remains the subject of local lore today. Official Selection at the **Berlin International Film Festival**. "*FASCINATING! A stranger-than-fiction gem.*" - Chris Nashawaty, ***Entertainment Weekly***
