About the Movie
Darwin meets Hitchcock in this feature-length documentary. "The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden" is a gripping tale of idealistic dreams gone awry, set in the brutal yet alluring landscape of the Galapagos Islands. This film skillfully interweaves an unsolved 1930s murder mystery with stories of present day Galapagos pioneers (a handful of Europeans, Americans and Ecuadoreans who settled idiosyncratically on the Islands between the 1930s and 1960s). As such, it is a parable about the search for paradise -- about what happens when a handful of individualists settle on the same small island seeking their own distinct and sometimes clashing notions of Eden.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The lessons, although obvious, bear repeating.
Fresh: A stranger-than-fiction gem.
Fresh: Move over, Charles Darwin, when it comes to great tales about the Galapagos, you've got company.
Rotten: How could this not be a great documentary? By putting it in the hands of Dayna Goldfine and Dan Geller, who have squandered their sensational subject into a two-hour slog.
