Why in Database: Unusual position, because it is a documentary about the Galapagos, but about people (specifically about Dr. Friedrich Ritter and his companions) and not, like most, about nature. This does not mean, of course, that nature is missing in this work, on the contrary, turtles can be seen in many scenes.
At the very beginning, there is also a legend about the local turtles that they could look into the minds of people arriving on the islands – and cast a curse on those who have bad intentions.
“There i heard a legend about the galapagos tortoises,w ho have the capacity to know what’s in the minds of people who go there. So, if they meet someone who has come with bad intentions, they curse him.
