'Cargo' brings the raw story of three brothers who own a family business in the fishery and are trying to save it from destruction. The passion for their profession but also for their loved ones, however, drives them to desperate actions.

Titus De Voogdt and Johan Heldenbergh are wonderful actors who are underplaying very effectively the whole film and create this sense of cool reality. Delfine Bafort is a model who is very convincing in her first big role. There is a scene where she tries to connect with Steve where we actually believe she doesn't really care about Steve, but plays it as we believe she actually want to tell him she loves him. Great love story! Just a shame the film has just such a terrible quality and we feel that the whole film has no real viewpoint. It lacks a little bit of edge, where American movies are so great in. But this is maybe due to the lack of experience. Same actors other director, please !!
