Go in the Wilderness2013

  • 3.3
GO IN THE WILDERNESS tells the story of Lilith, Adam's rebellious first mate, and her guardian, as they forge an uneasy alliance on their journey back to Eden. Once in the Garden, they meet Adam and his new mate Eve and realise that all is not as it seems in Paradise. Shot against the striking backdrop of Quebec's remote North Shore, GO IN THE WILDERNESS presents a bold new version of the myth of creation.

All of the movie is gorgeous, but the curious Lilith’s first impression of the world through stone, sea urchins, blood and lichen is unforgettable. This version of the Fall and Lilith’s part leading to it is told with mundane dialogue in a down-to-earth way. I watched it again the next day and liked it even more the second time. A beautiful and thoughtful movie.

Thanks for watching the film. Glad you liked it.

Some fine films are based on current day interpretations of literature. This one is a wonderful interpretation of one of the older anthologies of western lit, the Bible. Calm and tense at the same time. the settings chosen seemed brooding with even Eden seeming to lack some measure of warmth beyond the flowers.

Perfect length with a curious cast choice that I believe reflected the modern take on the characters and their satisfaction with simply knowing that things are as they are.

The film is helpful in bringing together at least two of the myths prominent in christian and Jewish beliefs. I hoped at first seeing a female form, that we might be treated to a myth that portrays the creation of humans that begins first with a female!

It would make a little bit of biological sense.

But no, we find that males, and not females, have been spoken to by the creator, and the males just know they are right, and questions are to be ignored. Females are to obey. Humankind over the centuries, have clung to whatever myth supported the patriartic society that put men in charge. The film tries to give man chance to wonder, but they are unable to move from their "god-given" certainty. I'm in favor of more questions and more questioning of what we have become. If the film leads some to see that ancient beliefs are based upon fantastic myths, then they may feel more free to explore beyond the garden. I wasn't such a great place anyway. No place for a human vision of purpose.

beautiful visually, but much too ot biblical for my liking

I liked the scenery and was hoping this would be good, but the way "the garden" was nothing but sunflowers and apples and there was no meaning to any of it was very disappointing. I wish this filmmaker had read the Ringing Cedars Series before making this and then been able to tell a more interesting and uplifting story of Lilith.

This movie left me feeling sad for our species. It doesnt have to be that way. I wish there were more uplifting, movies that made logical sense. Adams habit of saying its just how it is, and having no logical reason why seemed to make no sense to me. The Creator wouldn't create such a limited garden and then say you cant eat anything from it and you just work for no reason. Thats a concept greedy men came up with

This was quiet, and moody, and a little unsettling. I admired the filmmaker's notion that the Garden of Eden was, though peaceful, safe and plentiful, a place where nothing had any meaning, apart from 'because that's the way it is', 'because I said so', or 'because God said so'. I thought the acting was good, and the musical score set just the right tone.

Glad to get a review which appreciates our film. Thanks

There are things to like and dislike about this movie. It has beautiful settings and cinematography. But it goes from characters with no speech to yacking and complaining as if it's two different movies. Doesn't add a lot to the Eden "myth."
