After crashing at sea, a group of American military cadets find themselves marooned on a deserted island. The boys band together, but as the island becomes their own, competition and power struggles split them into two groups. Ralph (Getty) leads one group and preaches civilized ingenuity and togetherness, but Jack (Furrh) wants nothing of it and builds a faction of barbaric hunters who ultimately go to war with Ralph. The powerful shift in conscience transforms ordinary kids into primal killers, setting off a devastating battle of good versus evil
Herr der Fliegen by William Golding( visu )
9 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 10 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)
Il Signore delle mosche ( visu )
1 edition published in 1992 in Italian and held by 1 library worldwide
Secondo film basato sul romanzo di William Golding, questa versione della storia vede come protagonisti un gruppo di cadetti di un'accademia militare. Precipitati con l'areo sul quale viaggiavano in un'isola deserta, i ragazzi si radunano e cercano di organizzare una forma di convivenza. Ma una volta adattatisi al paradiso terrestre nel quale vivono, i ragazzi si dividono in due fazioni: una, guidata da Ralph, crede sia giusto convivere in ordine e civiltà; l'altra, condotta da Jack, si da alla caccia e alle barbarie. Tra i due gruppi nascerà un conflitto. (Musicafilm)

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)
