Escape from Paradise

Synopsis: A giant turtle floats through space and reads its book. He meets Adam and Eve, who take over the book and rip the still empty pages from it. But by doing so they set free all unwritten ideas from which objects begin to grow and fill the world of Adam and Eve. When eventually these objects take over their world, Adam and Eve escape. They will end where they started, meeting a giant turtle who shuts his book. It is a film about technological development and man's control or loss of control over it. It is about man's wish for more, faster, better and newer and about losing control over an ever - and fast changing world filled with ideas, plans and inventions.

- Give me that medallion.

- No, it's mine.

- Give it to us.

- I saw it first.

You might have seen it first,

but I picked it up before you.

Escape From Paradise

Finally.

- Are you a man?

- What do you think?

Yes, maybe.

Only because I'm dressed?

You mean you're scared of an old man?

- And who might you be?

- I'm Cosma.

- And who gave you that?

- I found it on the beach.

It's mine...

Give it to me, they stole it.

- Did you open it?

- No, it's sealed.

- That medallion has a long story.

- What story?

A story of two kids who

had a great dream...

A great, irresistible desire...

And they would never have

succeeded without that medallion.

Hi, Theo.

What is it?

Nothing...

I wanted to see you.

We saw each other less than

ten minutes ago!

Are you upset I called?

No, of course not.

- Did you see the news?

- Yes...

I watched all of it,

I didn't miss a word.

Did you hear my father's proposal

about lowering the age for couples?

Yes, I hoped it might

change something for us.

It's a shame they didn't approve it.

It wouldn't have changed anything...

Harry has the last word...

- If he doesn't select us.

- What do you want to do?

I don't know.

I don't know.

But it would be terrible if

he said we were incompatible.

- Understood?

- Yes, yes...

You're so boring.

- Understood?

- Understood!

Listen, I wrote this for you.

Perhaps Harry will choose us.

- It's a chance in a thousand.

- I don't want to wait.

Certainly not ten years...

And then to hear them say

I can't be with you.

You're right.

It seems almost absurd.

What was so absurd?

A lot of it was absurd!

Theo and Beatrice were two young

human beings who loved each other...

But the cruelty of their world wouldn't let

them live how they would have liked to.

They were completely different...

But their love broke all the rules.

What did their parents say?

No, I just called her.

- We see each other every day now.

- Do your folks know about Beatrice?

No, you're the only person I've told.

I think you're compatible.

Thomas, the trouble is it's

not you who decides, it's Harry.

What's going on?

Answer me?

It's very hot.

Yes, it's true.

To be honest, it feels

hotter than previous years.

Are you sure you haven't

programmed Harry for July?

I don't think so.

Thirty eight degrees in the sun,

exactly the same as last year.

Then why can't we handle

the heat this year?

Well, perhaps...

Perhaps we're getting old.

What do you think?

Shall we turn it off?

Yes, that's enough for today.

Turn it off.

Turn off the simulator immediately!

It doesn't work.

- Activate Caleb.

- Caleb!

Eliseo, did you hurt yourself?

Forgive me.

- Father!

- What is it, Theo?

Something happened to Thomas,

there was an explosion...

- I saw lots of smoke.

- Calm down!

- What happened?

- How should I know?

- Why did they stop transmission?

- It's probably a technical fault.

I don't think so,

this isn't the first time.

Theo, calm down,

don't worry...

Eliseo...

Wait for me.

Will you explain?

Promise me I won't regret telling

you the truth... Promise me!

I should go,

I don't want to be late.

What's wrong, mother?

What's happening?

Did Theo and Beatrice know

the truth as well?

- No.

- Why not?

You wouldn't understand...

You live under the sun...

You can play with your friends

on the beach...

- But the world was different then.

- What about the world?

I would've told the truth,

why not say it?

You can't always say it.

And those few who lived down there

used it to control the lives of others...

They didn't tell lies,

but half truths...
