In 1929, a German doctor and his patient/mistress left the comforts and trials of civilization and set sail for the ends of the Earth: Floreana, a tiny uninhabited island in the Galápagos. Like a contemporary Adam and Eve, they carved out their own Eden. But it wasn’t long before others invaded their paradise, and as the island’s population swelled to five, six, and then nine with the arrival of a lusty adventuress and her two lovers, the stage was set for mischief. The ingredients of this long-ago real-life murder mystery are delicious, but the recipe is padded to fill a bulky couple of hours, when what really holds your interest unfolds in the last 40 minutes or so. Not rated. 120 minutes. In English Spanish with subtitles. The Screen, Santa Fe. See review.
