An order for 1,000 yachts for a middle-east sheik is up for grabs. The list of contestants has been narrowed down to two companies: one is a multinational one with good backing and the other is run by visionaries and enthusiasts with their main focus on rowing-boats. Having a hard time to decide between the two the sheik declares a race on the Göta Canal through Sweden, from the capital of Stockholm to the second city of Gothenburg, where the winner gets the order. Pretty soon it becomes obvious that winning does not mean strictly abiding to sea rules and regulations. Written by

Mmmm... this was really good! What is it?
It's escargots! Delicious.
Escargots, what does that mean?
Snails! They prepared it this way in ancient Rome, on midsummer's eve.

Could I have something to drink, please?

One of the worst and most boring movies from Scandinavia. What is the point to make a film with OK actors & OK story if it is so extremely dull. I remember this movie was allowed for children to watch, but it becomes a bit to dull and difficult for a 11 year old to follow the story here. Not a movie for children at all. ------ (2 out of 10)
