In the drama, which was Leonardo & # 39; s unexpected successor to the successful colossal giant Titanic, the actor plays a young American backpacker looking for adventure to Thailand.
There Richard meets the crazy madman Daffy (played by Robert Carlyle) who tells him about an idyllic island where a community lives in a remote paradise, perfect for the hedonistic lifestyle he seeks.
When Daffy commits suicide and the young man leaves a hand-drawn map to the island, Richard invites his neighbor Françoise and her friend Étienne (Guillaume Canet) to help him find heaven on earth.

Initially, the beach turns out to be the paradise that Richard had dreamed of, and it becomes all the more true when he and Françoise become lovers.
Business, however, comes to an end quickly, as Richard incurs the anger of the community, led by Sal (Tilda Swinton), because he tells outsiders about the beach and is banished to the jungle.
In the notoriously insane third act of the film, Richard moves from a big-eyed tourist to a threatening jungle creature as the young man's grip on reality begins to slip away.

Thriller: Despite their romance, it quickly gets worse when Richard incurs the anger of the community, led by Sal (Tilda Swinton), because he tells outsiders about paradise
Desperate to keep the festive atmosphere of the beach fantasy alive, Richard begins to dissociate from the community and his common sense, sneaking up on the inhabitants of the island.
He begins to imagine the world as a video game and Richard even changes to Colonel Kurtz as the film alludes to the war epic Apocalypse Now.
Although the film did not become a box office hit after its release and even Leonardo deserved a Razzie Award nomination for worst actor, it has since been considered a cult classic.
