Quotes

Alan: What do you do when you don't know what you want? When you know you're desperate but don't know why. When you can't express how you feel, even to yourself. And when a way out seems a thousand to one chance.

The dreamlife of sailors
21 March 2000 | by (Champ sur Drac, France) – See all my reviews

Take a look at the names of the people who made this film... Marguerite Duras, Jeanne Moreau, Vanessa Redgrave, Orson Wells, Umberto Orsini, Christopher Isherwood...

It seems almost surreal that the movie could be left for dead... Sure, it is no masterpiece but it is worth a lot more than the modern mass productions.... Psychology, feminine attraction, adventure, sailors, mystery... good ingredients. May be it could be a fantastic remake...
