Lord of the Flies

Lord of the Flies is an English novel written by William Golding in 1954. This story tells the fragility of the civilization by staging children left to themselves after the crash of a plane. All adults died. Very soon, social models that they try to apply shatter. So, violence and brutality become the watchwords.

It’s a novel very harsh and very bloody but this story is often studied like a children’s book. There is an adaptation of this novel, directed by Peter Brook in 1963. This adaptation is very touching and very faithful: it’s a beautiful and highly disturbing film version. The director won the Golden Palm at the Cannes International Film Festival in 1963…

  1. I agree with Heloise, perhaps it’s could be interesting to read the book, and after, watch the film!

  2. I haven’t seen the movie but he but the atmosphere of the book is very strange, so disturbing, there is a contact with madness. The better thing is certainly the blend of the idyllic island and the earie atmosphere I think but the film could be really touching as you say.
