Plot / Synopsis Marita is fed up with civilization, her family and her husband. So she turn her back on them all and goes to live on Tahitian island called “Bora Bora”. Her husband refuses to accept the situation and goes off in search for her. He eventually arrives at Bora Bora where he feels an outcast amongst the tranquility and the quiet, easy way of life. Finally, he finds his wife and experiences a great traumatic shock: he discovers her in the middle of making passionate love to another man, a Tahitian. The sight absolutely breaks him up. To show her that he is still a man he takes a native girl as his lover and he finds himself liking the primitive existence. But the island’s purity has been shattered by the corrupt intrusion of Marita and her husband, and Marita slowly begins to realize that civilization, family and husband mean more to her than she previously imagined.
The cinematography is magnificent, as well as the shots of the Gauguin paintings. However the film was never relished on video or DVD. This is the dubbed English version which was available on HULU. In short the film centers around a man going in search of his wife, who walked out on him. He traces her to Bora Bora, and this is where his problems really begin, with his obsession of winning his wife back, trying all types of ploys to do so.
