Adamo Ed Eva La Prima Storia D'Amore
were the years of " The Blue Lagoon" and "Paradise" and teenagers
dreamed about the first amorous adventures in a place away from
everyone, with Brooke Shields or Phoebe Cates or Christopher Atkins and
William Aames according to taste. Two incredible successes (for two bad
movies) that brings the usual clever Italian to follow the footsteps.
So Enzo Doria and Luigi Russo created in 1983 " Adamo ed Eva La prima
storia d’amore" with already in the title the idea of two young,
inexperienced young who learn all about sex and love.
The two directors doesn’t set the story in a island or in the
desert, but they try the way of the religious allegory to which they
add large doses of adventure, action and eroticism less strong than the
two mainstream movies.
The two protagonists are also two actors who had a career full of
legends and fantasy. Mark Gregory, Marco Di Gregorio, as Adam here, was
the protagonist for less than a decade of so many action Italians
movies see, e.g., " 1990: Bronx Warriors " and " Escape From The Bronx
" and Andrea Goldman who plays Eva in her only film before disappear
into nothing.. With them, for the record, Angel Alcazar, Spanish actor
who starred in several TV series in his country.
Returning to our heroes, the two find themselves involved in a film
that has a good photography and an interesting idea that would imprint
the relationship of the two protagonists in terms of quarrels between
husband and wife. But it doesn’t work, who know if are the actors
or the script, but no one really believes and everything is thrown
away, creating the opposite effect, of banal and obvious dialogues,
which definitely bored. There are not many dialogues here to be honest,
since the creation of Adam, then Eve's and the expulsion from Eden with
the snake, which is the first comic relief.
On earth, after about twenty minutes of the film, the two quarrels
separate and face a series of unlikely primitive tribes with monkey
costumes, bear or that are painted green, in very fake battles. One of
the tribe in green, certainly more evolved, manages to fall in love
with Eva and apparently lead her to try new experiences. Adam jealous
is able to regain his lovely, to save himself, by sheer luck, by
glaciations and also by the immediate melting of ice.
Eventually, the two have a baby whose birth is a special effect that is not seen even in the “educational."
