Mentally handicapped twentysomething Emile (La Haye) and precocious 12-year-old Cedrine (Monette) must learn to work together to survive after a plane crash strands them on an island in the Bahamas. Familiar story offers no surprises and the script shies away from any sexual implications, negating two excellent performances. French with subtitles. 103m/C VHS . CA David La Haye, Marie France Monette; D: Robert Menard; W: Claire Wojas. Genie ‘95: Actor (La Haye).
