Y Adan y 1971 (Chile) on DVD
aka Y Adán y… (1971)
From the depths of the sea is born Adán (Willy Rojas), a young boy who, walking along the beach, meets another boy (Miguel Ángel Lagos), who gives him the knowledge of learning and maturing.
As a young man he comes across a grotesque band who represent human society without understanding and rational purpose, obsessed with power and status within the group.
A woman restores his emotional equilibrium and teaches him to love, but he is no longer the naked innocent who emerged from the depths at the start of the film.
The complexities of life baffle him, like the patterns in the wisps of cloud in the sky.
Finally, an old man hands a box, perhaps containing the secret of life, to another boy (played by Willy Rojas again) who emerges from the sea.
But is the child ready to face the truth about human life? Could, in fact, the box be empty?…
