Dino De Laurentiis’ epic adventure story features an all-star cast and impressive special effects. Filmed entirely on location on the remote South Seas island of Bora Bora, this is a touching story of the desperate love affair between a young Samoan chief (Dayton Ka’ne) and a beautiful American painter (Mia Farrow), against the will of her father (Jason Robards), the powerful governor of the island. Amid this man-made tension comes a powerful hurricane so devastating, the lives of the lovers and the entire island are imperiled. Sven Nykvist’s brilliant cinematography showcases both the beautiful island splendor and the catastrophic destruction of Hurricane.
