This is the tale of the collapse of a fishing community from the eyes of a girl at the heart of it. Gentle and warming, though with some much darker scenes the film has that elusive quality which holds the interest of the viewer throughout. Like many Rank movies it falls more towards the TV movie than Hollywood showcase, but still far superior to a mere television work.
Not an award winner or a well-loved treasure, High Tide at Noon is nonetheless a very watchable film and an pleasant way to spend an afternoon. The actress does have a certain naivety, but that is part of the charm of the picture.
I recommend this movie to all those who yearn for a simpler time.
