After crashing at sea, a group of American military cadets find themselves marooned on a deserted island.

Herr der Fliegen by William Golding ( Visual )
14 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Eine Gruppe amerikanischer Militärschüler wird durch einen Flugzeugabsturz auf eine einsame Insel verschlagen. Im Überlebenskampf spaltet sich die Schicksalsgemeinschaft von 8-12 Jährigen in zwei Lager. Eine Partei versucht zivilisiert zu bleiben und die Insel irgendwie zu verlassen, die andere übt sich in wilder Jagd, Kriegsbemalung und der Erforschung der Insel. Als die Hoffnung auf Rettung mehr und mehr schwindet verfeinden sich die beiden Gruppen immer mehr, mit tragischen Folgen. In der zweiten Verfilmung des weltbekannten Romans von Sir William Golding (Erstverfilmung von Peter Brook, 1963) wird auf formale Experimente verzichtet und auf Realismus gesetzt. Gut geführte Laiendarsteller verkörpern die jungen Burschen, die in der Wildnis zunehmend der Irrationalität und Brutalität verfallen. (Quelle: Umschlag)

Eine Gruppe Jugendlicher ist nach einem Schiffbruch gezwungen, auf einer unbewohnten Insel das menschliche Zusammenleben neu zu organisieren. Das Experiment endet für einige von ihnen tödlich, da dumpfe Instinkte und Machtgier über Vernunft und Friedfertigkeit siegen. Neuverfilmung von William Goldings zivilisationskritischer Robinsonade, die den vielschichtigen Stoff weitgehend auf seine Handlungskonturen und platte Thesendialoge reduziert. Auch in der optischen Auflösung wenig zufriedenstellend, so daß die Chance zu einem anspruchsvollen Genrefilm verschenkt wird. Quelle: Lexikon des Internationalen Films (CD-ROM)
