Moving story of family bonds versus nature

9/10
Author: Lucian Wischik from Seattle, USA
1 February 2001

A fishing vessel sets out from a small town in South Australia. A storm comes, and the boat is wrecked. The filming of the storm and its aftermath, out at sea on the boat, are remarkable. In parallel, the film tells the story of a young boy wanting to grow up, wanting to fit into the world of his father and brothers out at sea.

The fishing vessel and the storm might remind you of The Perfect Storm. However, unlike that film, Blue Fin also tells a more subtle tale (of growing up and family bonds), has thoroughly believable fishermen, and describes well their relationship with the sea and with their boat. Blue Fin was written by the author of "Storm Boy"; if you liked one of the two films, you'll probably like the other.
