Strong psycho drama
17 January 2019 | by dakjetsSee all my reviews

By chance I chose this movie one evening. It was a good choice. The film is both exciting, surprising and interesting. The film also portrays a era in a stylish way. For many young people (especially boys), it was precisely to model on a boat the first meeting with the working life. The experiences and experiences they did were different and sometimes tough. Just as this story conveys. The film is also a psychological drama, and shows how vulnerable young people are in the world of a rough adult world. Young Martin designs on a boat with courses for South Africa, on a boat with many rules, many he must find out along the way. Especially when meeting the boat's chief chef, who is anything but normal. The film has many good scenes, and it is unpredictable and you are drawn into the story along the way. I tried to find information about this movie and I don't think it was a great success when it came. Don't let this scare you away and ignore the relatively low score here. Because this one is really good.
